Create Custom Navigation Bar For Blogger


A navigation menu is highly required organize your blog labels, or to add a menu button for a new Blogger page, or to link to another page on the web. This can be done using some basic HTML and CSS. Before 2 years, our previous admin Mr. Ajaya Gajurel wrote a post on "Creating Custom Navigation Bar for Blogger". You can see it here. So, I'm not going to describe more about it. Just I will be telling you that they will work as a buttons for bloggers. When we click on any of them, it redirects to the specified URL of it.

Follow My Steps on Adding Custom Navigation Bar;

  • Go To Blogger Dashboard
  • Click On Add A Gadget Just Below Your Blogger Header (Because We will be showing it in the top of our blog)
  • Click On HTML/Javascript 
  • Paste The Below Code there;
 <div id="tabs24">  
      <ul>  
           <li><a href="1st link" title="Smasher Menu"><span>Home</span></a></li>  
           <li><a href="2nd Link" title="Smasher Menu" class="current"><span>About Us</span></a></li>  
           <li><a href="3rd link" title="Smasher Menu"><span>Services</span></a></li>  
           <li><a href="4th Link" title="Smasher Menu"><span>Our Work</span></a></li>  
           <li><a href="5th link" title="Smasher Menu"><span>Contact Us</span></a></li>  
      </ul>  
 </div>  


  • Change 1st Link, 2nd Link, 3rd Link, etc with your respective links.
  • Change Home, About Us, Services, Our Work, Contact us, etc with the text to appear in the button.
  • Save it!
Now, we have added the links. But it is incomplete and looks very very simple. Now, let's stylize the bar. Follow My Steps To Stylize the navigation bar;
  • Go To Blogger Dashboard And Select Template And Click On Edit HTML
  • Then Search for This Code inside the HTML Codes: ]]></b:skin>
  • Now Just Paste This below code before/above ]]></b:skin>
 /* ---------------------- Start Smasher Navigation Bar ---------------------- */
