This is a tutorial about some of the elements I’ve inserted in my blog using HTML codes. I use blogger platform which can be customized in every way you want. The template I’m using is a free blogger template but I’ve customized it for a great outlook. By the way, I’m not a programmer. I have just learned those few codes while blogging.
I hope you will find them useful and please stumble and delicious it before you go. Please do ask me a question if you faced any trouble using them. Here they are,
Most of the custom templates got a top tab where you can add your blog links like home, about page, contact page etc. If your template doesn’t have one, or you are using a classic template then create one. Here is the top tab of tamalanwar.com (by the way, I’ve changed the template, take a look)
Create a new HTML page element and insert this code,
<p> <a href='http://yoursite.com/page1'>link1</a> | <a href='http://yoursite.com/page2'>link2</a> | <a href='http://yoursite.com/page3'>link3</a> | <a href='http://yoursite.com/page4'>link4</a> | <a href='http://yoursite.com/page5'>link5</a> | </p>
You can see the welcome note of blogkori. To create this I’ve used only plain text and added some HTML’s for those links,
<p> Some text <a href='http://yoursite.com/link1'>Link 1</a> some more text <a href='http://yoursite.com/link2'>Link 2</a> some more text. </p>
Instead of “Labels” -I’ve created special categories of each tags so that it will look more professional. The url of each label is, https://blogkori.com/search/label/tutorials
If you want to control how many articles a category will show in the next page, add the extra code: https://blogkori.com/search/label/tutorials?max-results=5 -Add those categories one by one as a link list
If you want to show the monthly archive pages of your blogger blog, then add this address: https://blogkori.com/2008_11_01_archive.html -(2008_November_01) -Add this like a link list too.
