How to add Page number in Blogger


Page number is one of the most important tool for web site navigation. It gives  your readers the opportunity of navigate the blog easily. Unfortunately blogger does not provide page number  navigation widget by default. But you can add page number to your blogger. Today I will show you how can you add page number widget to your blogger. Before that just let you know that, you can add page no. to your blogger by two ways. One is editing your blogger’s  HTML code  and another way is adding a page no. widget to your blogger’s  layout. Honestly speaking I don’t like editing HTML and it is bit difficult too. So I will show you how can you add page number to your blogger by just adding a widget. The process is very simple. Just follow the simple step…..


Go to your Blogger’s Dashboard >> Select layout >> Add a Gadget >> Choose HTML/Java Script Gadget >> Paste the code (given below) in your java script. Place the java script widget just below the post section of your blogger's layout. As simple is that.
Note: Just Reminding you; show post per page must be same to your blogger’s settings. Suppose if you select show post per page is 6 to your blogger. You have to select var pageCount 6. Otherwise it will not work properly. Here var page count by default is 5. You can choose how many post you would like show in your Blogger’s per page. Your Java Script code is given below.




<style type='text/css'>

.showpageArea a {
text-decoration:underline;
}
.showpageNum a {
border:1px solid #aeaeae;
margin:0 3px;
padding:3px 7px;
text-decoration:none;
}
.showpageNum a:hover {
background-color:#0a8be5;
border:1px solid #000000;

}
.showpagePoint {
-moz-background-clip:border;
-moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
-moz-background-origin:padding;

border:1px solid #aeaeae;
color:#333333;
margin:0 3px;
padding:3px 7px;
text-decoration:none;
}
.showpageOf {
margin:0 3px 0 0;
padding:3px 7px;
text-decoration:none;
}
.showpage a {
border:1px solid #aeaeae;
padding:3px 7px;
text-decoration:none;
}
.showpage a:hover {
text-decoration:none;
}
.showpageNum a:link, .showpage a:link {
color:#333333;
text-decoration:none;
}
