How to create navigation links in your blog

This is for people who own more than one blog and want a navigation menu in your blog. With a navigation menu in your blog, visitors to one of the blogs can access the other blogs by clicking on the navigation link. To understand better, check out the main menu on the top, in my blog.

For instance, if you want to have navigation for your blogs and here’s how you do it;

1. Go to Layout/Page Element

2. Click on Add a Gadget

3. Give a suitable title like for my blog I have named it as Main Menu

4. Copy and paste the below code on the ‘content’ area. Please remember to replace the site URL and title with that of your blog. For better understanding, I have marked in blue the link and texts that needs be replaced.
