Make A Static Page For Your Blog

A static page is one of the simplest accessories that you can add to your blog. It's simply a post that has been archived, and will never display in main page view.

It's astonishingly simple to make a static page.
  • Publish enough non static posts, to populate your main page. If you're simply making a web site, set main page size to 1 post, and publish one post.
  • Publish additional posts, and back date additional posts before the oldest non static post.
  • The additional posts, back dated, become static pages.
  • Wasn't that simple?



(Update 2010/01): As a belated Christmas present, Blogger now provides us, as a new post editor option, with the ability to create true static pages for our blogs.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
