Putting Numbered page Navigation insted of 'Newer Posts' or 'Older posts' in Blogger/Blogspot

Saturday, December 25, 2010



At the bottom of every blogger, by default, you will see 'older posts' and 'newer posts' to navigate between your pages. If your planning to give your blog a professional look and want your readers to effectively navigate between your pages, you need to replace the default navigation with Numbered pages. Lets get to the tutorial for putting Numbered page Navigation insted of 'Newer Posts' or 'Older posts'  in Blogger/Blogspot.



[Note : Always backup your template before making any changes]

Go to Settings tab in your blogger account then on Formatting and choose number of posts you wanna display on your homepage of your blog


Now go to your blogger dashboard, then design or layout (Whatever) and then click Edit HTML and tick Expand Widget Templates

Now hit Ctrl + F on your keyboard and type </body> in the appeared search bar and your browser will take you directly to that code. Immediately before </body> paste the following code


<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var pageCount=
7;
var displayPageNum=5;
var upPageWord ='Previous';
var downPageWord ='Next';
</script>

<script type='text/javascript'>

//<![CDATA[

function showpageCount(json){var thisUrl=home_page_url;var htmlMap=new Array();var thisNum=1;var postNum=1;var itemCount=0;var fFlag=0;var eFlag=0;var html='';var upPageHtml='';var downPageHtml='';for(var i=0,post;post=json.feed.entry[i];i++){var timestamp1=post.published.$t.substring(0,19)+post.published.$t.substring(23,29);timestamp=encodeURIComponent(timestamp1);var title=post.title.$t;if(title!=''){if(itemCount==0||(itemCount%pageCount==(pageCount-1))){if(thisUrl.indexOf(timestamp)!=-1){thisNum=postNum}if(title!='')postNum++;htmlMap[htmlMap.length]='/search?updated-max='+timestamp+'&max-results='+pageCount}}itemCount++}for(var p=0;p<htmlMap.length;p++){if(p>=(thisNum-displayPageNum-1)&&p<(thisNum+displayPageNum)){if(fFlag==0&&p==thisNum-2){if(thisNum==2){upPageHtml='<span class="showpage"><a href="/">'+upPageWord+'</a></span>'}else{upPageHtml='<span class="showpage"><a href="'+htmlMap[p]+'">'+upPageWord+'</a></span>'}fFlag++}if(p==(thisNum-1)){html+='<span class="showpagePoint">'+thisNum+'</span>'}else{if(p==0){html+='<span class="showpageNum"><a href="/">1</a></span>'}else{html+='<span class="showpageNum"><a href="'+htmlMap[p]+'">'+(p+1)+'</a></span>'}}if(eFlag==0&&p==thisNum){downPageHtml='<span class="showpage"> <a href="'+htmlMap[p]+'">'+downPageWord+'</a></span>';eFlag++}}}if(thisNum>1){html=''+upPageHtml+' '+html+' '}html='<div class="showpageArea" style="padding:10px 10px 10px 10px;"><span style="COLOR: #000;" class="showpageOf"> Pages ('+(postNum-1)+')</span>'+html;if(thisNum<(postNum-1)){html+=downPageHtml}if(postNum==1)postNum++;html+='</div>';var pageArea=document.getElementsByName("pageArea");var blogPager=document.getElementById("blog-pager");if(postNum<=2){html=''}for(var p=0;p<pageArea.length;p++){pageArea[p].innerHTML=html}if(pageArea&&pageArea.length>0){html=''}if(blogPager){blogPager.innerHTML=html}}function showpageCount2(json){var thisUrl=home_page_url;var htmlMap=new Array();var isLablePage=thisUrl.indexOf("/search/label/")!=-1;var thisLable=isLablePage?thisUrl.substr(thisUrl.indexOf("/search/label/")+14,thisUrl.length):"";thisLable=thisLable.indexOf("?")!=-1?thisLable.substr(0,thisLable.indexOf("?")):thisLable;var thisNum=1;var postNum=1;var itemCount=0;var fFlag=0;var eFlag=0;var html='';var upPageHtml='';var downPageHtml='';var labelHtml='<span class="showpageNum"><a href="/search/label/'+thisLable+'?&max-results='+pageCount+'">';var thisUrl=home_page_url;for(var i=0,post;post=json.feed.entry[i];i++){var timestamp1=post.published.$t.substring(0,19)+post.published.$t.substring(23,29);timestamp=encodeURIComponent(timestamp1);var title=post.title.$t;if(title!=''){if(itemCount==0||(itemCount%pageCount==(pageCount-1))){if(thisUrl.indexOf(timestamp)!=-1){thisNum=postNum}if(title!='')postNum++;htmlMap[htmlMap.length]='/search/label/'+thisLable+'?updated-max='+timestamp+'&max-results='+pageCount}}itemCount++}for(var p=0;p<htmlMap.length;p++){if(p>=(thisNum-displayPageNum-1)&&p<(thisNum+displayPageNum)){if(fFlag==0&&p==thisNum-2){if(thisNum==2){upPageHtml=labelHtml+upPageWord+'</a></span>'}else{upPageHtml='<span class="showpage"><a href="'+htmlMap[p]+'">'+upPageWord+'</a></span>'}fFlag++}if(p==(thisNum-1)){html+='<span class="showpagePoint">'+thisNum+'</span>'}else{if(p==0){html=labelHtml+'1</a></span>'}else{html+='<span class="showpageNum"><a href="'+htmlMap[p]+'">'+(p+1)+'</a></span>'}}if(eFlag==0&&p==thisNum){downPageHtml='<span class="showpage"> <a href="'+htmlMap[p]+'">'+downPageWord+'</a></span>';eFlag++}}}if(thisNum>1){if(!isLablePage){html=''+upPageHtml+' '+html+' '}else{html=''+upPageHtml+' '+html+' '}}html='<div class="showpageArea"><span style="COLOR: #000;" class="showpageOf"> Pages ('+(postNum-1)+')</span>'+html;if(thisNum<(postNum-1)){html+=downPageHtml}if(postNum==1)postNum++;html+='</div>';var pageArea=document.getElementsByName("pageArea");var blogPager=document.getElementById("blog-pager");if(postNum<=2){html=''}for(var p=0;p<pageArea.length;p++){pageArea[p].innerHTML=html}if(pageArea&&pageArea.length>0){html=''}if(blogPager){blogPager.innerHTML=html}}var home_page_url=location.href;var thisUrl=home_page_url;if(thisUrl.indexOf("/search/label/")!=-1){if(thisUrl.indexOf("?updated-max")!=-1){var lblname1=thisUrl.substring(thisUrl.indexOf("/search/label/")+14,thisUrl.indexOf("?updated-max"))}else{var lblname1=thisUrl.substring(thisUrl.indexOf("/search/label/")+14,thisUrl.indexOf("?&max"))}}var home_page="/";if(thisUrl.indexOf("?q=")==-1){if(thisUrl.indexOf("/search/label/")==-1){document.write('<script src="'+home_page+'feeds/posts/summary?alt=json-in-script&callback=showpageCount&max-results=99999" ><\/script>')}else{document.write('<script src="'+home_page+'feeds/posts/full/-/'+lblname1+'?alt=json-in-script&callback=showpageCount2&max-results=99999" ><\/script>')}}

</script>
</b:if>
</b:if>




Edit the red number i,e 7 in the above code according to posts you set on you home page by going to Settings>Formatting. For instance, if you have set your homepage to display 5 posts, then you must replace 7 from the above code with 5.

Done so far? ok now again hit Ctrl + F on your keyboard and type 'data:label.url' in the appeared search bar and your browser will take you directly to that code and then replace that code with this code

'data:label.url + &quot;?&amp;max-results=7&quot;'

Again edit the red number 7 accordingly.

Again hit Ctrl + F on your keyboard and type ]]></b:skin> in the appeared search bar and your browser will take you directly to that code. just above ]]></b:skin> paste the following code


.showpageArea a {
text-decoration:underline;
background: #ffffff;
padding: 10px 10px 10px 10px;

}
.showpageNum a {
text-decoration:none;
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
border-top: 1px solid #cccccc;
margin:0 3px;
padding:3px;
}
.showpageNum a:hover {
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
background-color:#cccccc;
}
.showpagePoint {
color:#333;
text-decoration:none;
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
background: #cccccc;
margin:0 3px;
padding:3px;
}
.showpageOf {
text-decoration:none;
padding:3px;
margin: 0 3px 0 0;
}
.showpage a {
text-decoration:none;
border: 1px solid #cccccc;
padding:3px;
}
.showpage a:hover {
text-decoration:none;
}
.showpageNum a:link,.showpage a:link {
text-decoration:none;
color:#333333;
}
