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.

Unbelievably useful. This was exactly what I wanted to do. Thanks so much!

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!

I'm new to blogging, and your posts are ridiculously helpful. You're the only person who explains everything I need to know in such easy to follow steps. Thank you so much!

What's The URL Of My Blog?

We see the plea for help, periodically I need the URL of my blog, so I can give it to my friends. Help! Who's buried in Grant's Tomb, after all? No Chuck, be polite. OK, OK. The title of this blog is "The Real Blogger Status", and the title of this post is "What's The URL Of My Blog?".

Where's The Dashboard?

We see this confusion, a couple times a week, in Blogger Help Forum: How Do I? . Where is the dashboard? In the Classic Blogger GUI, the display which contained the "Blog List" (at the top), and the "Reading List" (at the bottom) was labeled "Dashboard". Many people also called the "Settings" / "Template" screens for the various blogs, linked from the Blog List, the dashboard. The New Blogger GUI has no page with the label - and no links "To The Dashboard". The Navbar (another unlabeled feature) has two links - "Design" and "New Post" - which lead to different dashboard sections, when you are appropriately logged in to Blogger . And, the "B" logo at the far left of the navbar will, similarly, take you to the Blog List / Reading List.
