Recent Posts hack for Blogger

Friday, June 29, 2007

As a Blogger on BlogSpot, you may wish to add a 'Recent Posts' tab in your navigation bar. But, the new Blogger doesn't provide any widgets for this. Don't worry, there's a hack for this. All you need to do is add your own feed to your blog.

Here are the steps:

  1. Open your Blog's Template(Layout) page.
  2. Click on 'Add a Page Element' and select the 'Feed' widget.
  3. Your Blog's feed URL will be:
    http://[yourblog].blogspot.com/atom.xml
    (Make sure your blog feeds have been activated under the 'Settings' tab).
  4. Rename the tile as 'Recent Posts' and customize the number of feed elements you wish to add.
  5. Save the template changes and you're done.
You can experience the outcome of the hack on the right navigation panel of my blog. Just look for the heading 'Recent Posts'.

Enjoy this 'Recent Posts' hack in Blogger and do leave a comment if you like this hack.

Happy Blogging!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH. All the other hacks online were linked back to a very poorly written and incomprehensible hack that I could not get after ten tries. Thank you!
