Making Pages In Blogger Blogspot Blogs

I was just reading an article by someone who designed a Blogger blog that had pages and not just posts.

If you are not familiar with the difference between the two, posts appear consecutively on the same page with the newest at the top, like a rolling screen.

Pages are separate, and the only way to get to them is to navigate to them via a navigation menu that appears somewhere on the blog.

I wondered how he did that so I went into the admin side of this blog here at pixelsatemyhomework and I saw that in the 'Posting' page there is a section to 'Edit Pages' - I never noticed this before, and if I had noticed it I would have wondered how I could edit that which I do not have.

But in the way of the internet, clicking is easy and the penalties are usually small - so I clicked and bingo! it told me I hadn't created any pages and asked me whether I wanted to create a new page.

So that's how you do it. Simple!

The question is how the pages will look in the navigation menu, so after I have posted this I am going to make a page and take a look.

UPDATE
It was this article from Terence Chang that I was reading that led me to finding out about how to make pages on Blogger.

Terence's article describes how he designed a site using Google's Blogger. Take a look.

MarsEdit 4

I've been using MarsEdit for just over seven years. I started with version 2, and then upgraded to version 3 in 2010.Now, in 2018, I just upgraded to version 4. This is my first post with the upgrade and I'll report on it in a little while as I get used to the new version.Here is what Daniel of Red Sweater Software has to say about his product:Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be online just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not ideal for creating it. If you're serious about writing for the web, you need a desktop blog editor. If you're lucky enough to have a Mac, nothing is more powerful, or more elegant than MarsEditRich and Plain Text Editing MarsEdit's editor switches easily from Plain to Rich Text, so you can work in whichever format you prefer. Love Markdown? MarsEdit can preview it and convert it to HTML if needed.Wildly Compatible Works with WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, TypePad, Movable Type, and any …

Resistance Is Futile

Some of the trains that run from London Kings Cross to Cambridge divide at Cambridge. Part of the train goes on to Kings Lynn and the rest stops at Cambridge and does the run back to London. Perhaps it picks up other carriages coming from somewhere else, I don’t know but it seems likely.When you get on the train and before it sets off, there’s a public announcement announcing how the train divides. It explains that the train is composed of eight carriages and that passengers wanting to travel beyond Cambridge should ensure that they are in the front four carriages.The rear four carriages are of course nearest the barrier, so we choose to sit in one of those carriages if for no other reason than that we don’t have to walk so far to find a seat.So there we are and the voice comes over with the announcement. And then there is a pause and then a voice tells you what carriage you are in. So we hear ‘Six of Eight’ or ‘Seven of Eight’ – and every time I hear it I think of Star Trek, ‘Three o…

Business For Britain Is Concerned With Business For Britain

This report in the New York Times today


LONDON — Is British business fretting about the risks of the country drifting out of the European Union? Or does it crave a looser relationship with Continental allies, one free from meddlesome regulation?
The answer to that question remained unclear Monday after a newly formed group of business leaders argued for a renegotiation of Britain’s membership terms — echoing the policy of Prime Minister David Cameron, who in January promised voters a referendum on whether the country would remain in the Union.
The new group, called Business for Britain, is intended to counter the intervention of pro-E.U. business leaders who have warned of the dangers of Britain slipping out of the 27-nation bloc and its single market of 500 million people. A statement released Monday to announce the group’s formation was signed by about 500 executives.
I think this opinion in the New York Times article is interesting:

Never much attracted to the idea of European unity,…
