Blogger Magic - Resequence Pages Buttons / Links

Some blog owners add pages - dynamic and static - to their blog, then discover that the Pages gadget lists them in the wrong sequence.

We see an occasional question, in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.
My pages are poorly organised. How do I change the sequence?
This is not a difficult problem, to correct.

It's not difficult to change the sequence of the Pages buttons or links, using "Configure Page List".

Use "List Order" in "Configure Page List" to change button / link sequence.

The "List Order" wizard, in "Configure Page List", is used to resequence all pages entries (buttons / links) - for dynamic and static pages, alike.

Just "grab" a pages entry to be moved, using the "handle" - and re position it as desired.


Start in the dashboard Layout page.

Find the Pages gadget. Here, it's in the "Cross-Column" container.




Edit the Pages gadget.




That gives you "Configure Page List".




Find "List Order".




To re locate a button / link, find the "9 dot" handle.




Grab the page button to be moved. Mouse over the "9 dots", click and hold the left mouse button.

Drag the button, to its new location - and release. And Save.




And now, we see the page buttons, in the new sequence.



Just "click and grab", and move any button, into its new sequence. And don't forget to Save.



It's easy to change the order of the #Blogger Pages buttons / links, using the "List Order" GUI in "Configure Page List". Just click and drag any button / link, using the "9 dot" handle, into the desired location sequence.

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.

The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers.

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.
