Static Pages, With Multiple Posts, Using Labels

If you want to publish multiple "posts" on a static page, using a standard Pages Index gadget, you just edit the static page as required. That gives you multiple "posts" that never appear in archives or label retrievals, or on the main page, on one true static page.

If your need for a "static" page is simply to have a collection of "posts", linked from a tabs index, make a custom pages / posts index gadget, and index label retrievals. This gives you multiple posts that will initially appear on the main page, and on any number of dynamic indexed (archives / label retrievals) pages.

Continuing my "Contact" example from Static Pages, With Multiple Posts, I can publish any number of individual posts using the label "Contact". Then, my "Contact" tab uses a label search for "Contact" as the target, replacing the URL for a static "Contact" page.

Any time that I need an additional post published on the "Contact" page, I just add the "Contact" label to the post, publish the post, and there it is.

I have not tried what you recommend above, but does it also enable ability to comment on those pseudo posts on the static page separately? I can get to 'allow comments" for the full static page, but how would you allow it post specific?

If the individual posts are setup in "Post Options" to allow comments, then comments will be allowed. But these are real posts, not "pseudo posts".

Thank you so much for the info! I do have a question though. I've set up my labeled posts to appear on the static pages, but the post is also showing up on my "main" blog page. Can you explain how to get it to not show up on this page also. Like this: http://www.holland1945.com/

Thank you!

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

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.
