How many pages can I have in my blog?and
Why can't I have more than 20 tabs in my top menu bar?The Pages editor, in the New Blogger GUI, combines dynamic and static pages so discretely, not everybody realises where the limits are.
Blogger has limited the number of static pages - Pages entries created as "Blank page", by the Pages editor in the New GUI. There is, however, no similar limit on the number of dynamic pages - Pages entries created as "Web address". The limit there is purely based upon how much space you can devote, in the blog layout, to more tabs.
- There is no limit on posts.
- There is no limit on label searches (except, a limit on the number of labels).
- There is no limit on archive indexes.
- There is no limit on external links.

The limit on static pages is a resource issue. Static pages require specific resources, pre allocated to any 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. Those items are static, because they can only be changed by using the Pages editor, and explicitly changing the content of any one specific page, one page at a time.
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.
So understand the differences between dynamic and static pages - and know where the limits are, and where they are not.
