It used to be that you needed a fair bit of coding to get a nice looking horizontal navigation bar for your Blogger blog. Not anymore! Let me show you how easy Blogger has made this aspect of your design.
Pages only horizontal navigation in Blogger
Your blog posts are dynamic, ever changing content that appear in reverse chronological order on the homepage of your blog. Blog pages are different in that they contain static content which doesn’t change much and are linked to from your homepage. Two examples of popular blog pages are the About and Contact pages. In Blogger you can create a horizontal navigation bar that uses your pages only. Here’s how:
Create and publish a page.
Dashboard > Edit posts > Edit pages > New page > Add your content > Publish page > Blog tabs > View blog
