A few months ago, Blogger has completely redesigned the section of the Pages, which now, looks very similar to that of the Blogger Posts. Now we will be able to manage the pages with more flexibility. For example, we can publish, delete or change many of them to draft at the same time – which has just the same function as the old Don’t show option.
Among the options that we can find by hovering over a page and which we can see in the screenshot below are:
- Edit: To access the editing panel and to edit its contents.
- View: Open a new tab with the actual page.
- Share: Share it on Google+ (which was not possible before).
- Delete: remove a page.
In order to create a page, we need to open the pages editor from the button that says New Page. Almost every option tells us its function.
How to add a Web Address in the Pages widget
Many Blogger users wanted to know how can we add other web addresses, so that they display in the list of the Pages widget, since this option no longer appears in the “Pages” tab?
This can be done by opening the settings of the Pages widget by going to “Layout”, then click on the “Edit” link in the widget / gadget for Pages (if you don’t have the Pages gadget, just click on the “Add a gadget” link and select “Pages” from the pop-up window). And from there, we will find the option that says: “Add link page” – here, we will have to type the Web Address in the second field every time we want to add a new page from a specific address or URL.
Another cool feature that has been built is that now it will be possible to add a search description, and in that field to add the text that we want to appear in search results. Until now, this option has been available only for blog posts.
This option will appear once you enable the “Enable search description?” option by choosing “Yes”. This will show up on “Meta Tags” by accessing the preferences for the search engines: “Settings” > “Search preferences” > “Meta Tags” > “Enable search description”?
