How to Add Numbered Page Navigation Widget in Blogger Blog


In a Blogger Blog, there are options in setting up the number of posts to be displayed per page by going to Settings menu >> Post and comments >> show at most? post.Once the number of posts you have selected to be displayed per page is been exceeded we will now see the ''Older Posts" and "Newer Posts" navigation link or a Front and Back Arrow link in our home page and archive pages footer depending on our template design. By default, Blogger does not have the numbering page navigation function rather than the Older Posts and the Newer Posts links.

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;item&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<script type='text/javascript'>

Configuration:

[*] After successfully installing, you might want to change these default settings:
perPage: 3,
numPages: 3,
var firstText ='First';
var lastText ='Last';
var prevText ='« Previous';
var nextText ='Next »';
}
[*] perPage: The number of posts that will be shown in each page. This value has to be the same as the number of posts on the main page. 

[*] numPages: The number of pages that will be shown in the page navigation.

[*]Replace the 'First', 'Last', "« Previous" and "Next »" with your desired text..

Labels fix:

By default, Blogger will show 20 posts on label pages. To make this widget appear on label pages, we will have to cut down this down to the value that we gave for the perPage variable.

Find each occurrence of the following code snippet:
expr:href='data:label.url'
Replace it with this one below:
expr:href='data:label.url + "?&amp;max-results=7"'
Here 7 is the number of posts that will be displayed per page.

Step 8: Click on the "Save Template" button and you have successfully added the number page navigation widget for Blogger, Enjoy Navigating!
