I am not able to add a page to a blog.  I did have a tracker on Frustrated Maestros but got that removed. Not sure what I did to put a tracker on it.  But..I still cannot add a page to this blog or another I tried.  Found a place in Chrome to go to Tools>>addons>>extensions>>do not follow me on extensions>>clicked on remove>>restarted Chrome.  How can I be able to add a page to any of my blogs?

There is a separate menu on Blogger for Pages. Look at the menu on the left for “Pages”, then at the top for New Page.

Let me know if that helps.

Just sent sign in for blogger and password, to your E mail.

I do know where to get a page.
 
 
In Dashboard:
Roxie Class….cannot add a page.  does not show up on the Roxie Class site.
 
GreytGreys.,…..these are two blogs that I use to experiment with.  Greyt Greys…shows up at the side.
 
I see that to tell the Page or TAB where to go is in Design…but I do not find it there.
 
Thank you….Roxie

OK, I think I found the issue. Not sure when they added this feature, but it’s definitely new since any of my videos. You can specify what pages to show and what pages not to show. And, the default is to NOT show.

First, on the Blog’s Layout, you need to click the Edit link on the Pages gadget, that will show you the checkboxes. Make sure to check them … also notice that you can drag them into a different order using the dotted boxes at the right.

Perservere my friend! You’ll get there.

I think you didn’t click the SAVE button! I went in to look and none of the new pages were checked. I checked them, and clicked on SAVE – they’re showing up now. Except for the last one since there isn’t enough room. I guess you need a different template to get multiple rows of tabs – like on your Maestro blog. gotta investigate that.

OK…don’t think I sent a letter.  I have gone to the list of blogs and checked and then saved.  I tried to put one on Roxie’s Class and that did not show up anywhere.  No TABS there but I made one…finally realized I had to go to layout and get a gadget that says pages.  Then made sure they were all checked and saved.  Waaalaaa…they showed  up.

Now I must figure out the order of events, get them recorded, and and hope google leaves them alone.  Still not certain of what I am doing…but getting a little father long.  Many thanks…I likely will be back. Can’t let my breath go just yet.Embarassed  Roxie

Being able to hold one’s breath longer than Google can make changes….I did add a page or a TAB to blogs:

select the blog>pages>new page and add info>publish>view blog to confirm TAB is not there>Design on blog>layout>pages:edit> put a check in all boxes>SAVE>view blog to confirm new TAB on blog.  

Of course…thank you for all of your help.  Wink  Roxie
