Redirecting to a Static home page

In BHF:Layouts & Templates we use to see a number of questions on having stating home page on Blogger. Yes, it is possible with the new feature of blogger called Search Preferences.

If you're looking for redirecting from one blog to another, please read blog redirection in two ways.


So how do I?
  1. Sign in to Blogger.
  2. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Search Preferences > Errors and Redirects > Click Edit on Custom redirects.
  3. In From, just type "/"
  4. In To type the link to which you want to redirect. 
  5. For example, If I need to redirect my blog's home page - http://howtoblog.krishnainfotron.com to http://howtoblog.krishnainfotron.com/index.htm, then in the To text box, I would just type /index.htm
  6. Click Save > Save Changes
  7. You could see I have redirected my http://howtoblog.krishnainfotron.com/index.htm to http://howtoblog.krishnainfotron.com/p/comments.html for example.
  8. Happy Blogging!

  1. I tried to follow your instructions to redirect http://debhalasz.blogspot.com to http://debhalasz.blogspot.com/p/home.html
    I have the new UI, and I had no difficulty finding the search preferences.
    However, when I click save, the box around the redirect links turns red. It's not saving, and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
    I've typed "/" in the first box and "/portfolio.html" in the second box.
    I also tried typing "/" in the first box
    and "/home.html" in the second box because I wasn't sure which way to handle the redirect.

    Can you help?
    Thank you!
    I want what's currently at http://debhalasz.blogspot.com to be moved to http://debhalasz.blogspot.com/p/portfolio.html

    Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

    1. Let me explain you how to do. In the first box give / In the second box give /p/home.html and save it. You have no page called portfolio.html You have to do some changes in your template.
      1)Go to Dashboard=>Design=>Click Edit on Pages=>Remove.
      2)Now Click add gadget that appears on in the place of the Pages gadget.
      3) Choose HTML/Java Script and add the following code in it. Click on the link here
      4) Save. You are done.

    1. You can't do that. We can't redirect to diff. URL each time. Instead you can leave your blog as it is without any redirects so that they see your diff. post each time as they login...

Meet a spammer

Let me start by a warning, This blogpost has nothing to do with howtoblog and is a story of a spammer.

Years ago we had to face a spammer in the forum(Probably during Pistachio?) who was very persistent. He was a link dropping spammer who kept sharing his blog URL under every reply in the forum and somewhere to his blogposts which merely had instructions from Blogger Help Centre.

It went as,
Thanks and Regards,
HIS NAME
HIS BLOG URL Probably it was so difficult for TCs to make him go away as I happened to see him for months, spamming in the forum and one fine day he disappeared and never returned.

I happened to find him and interview him which I am writing down here,

Blogger Language Confusions

In BHF, we recently had a great confusion on Blogger Platform language and Blogger Blog language. So I decided to go ahead and write in detail about it.

There are two important terms here to begin with,
Blogger PlatformBlogger BlogBlogger Platform is what you see when you go to https://www.blogger.com. The operating system that helps you write and manage your blogs on Blogger.
