andHow many pages can I have in my blog?
The Pages editor manages dynamic and static pages so transparently, not everybody realises where the limits are.Why can't I have more than 20 tabs in my top menu bar?
(Update 2014/11): This limit has been relaxed - but it does not appear to be gone, entirely.
Blogger has limited the number of static pages - Pages entries created as "Blank page", by the Pages editor in the New GUI.
The limit on static pages is a resource issue. Static pages require specific resources, pre allocated to every blog - and increasing the number of static pages, like increasing the limit on number of labels, would have to be made to all blogs. Such resources are limited, just as everything is limited, in some way.
Learn the different possibilities for dynamic and static pages - and your blog has a virtually limitless potential for expansion.
Even if you can have only up to 20 static pages, you can index an unlimited amount of dynamic pages, using the Pages gadget, and adding "Web address" entries. You are limited only by the space used by the blog header tabs, or by the sidebar based gadget.
- Individual posts.
- Label searches.
- Archive indexes.
- Other blogs and websites.
There is no limit, for dynamic pages. Those items are dynamic, because once you add a dynamic entry, it links to content that is constantly changing, without the need to use the Pages editor.
So understand the differences between dynamic and static pages - and know where the limits are, and where they are not.
