How to configure default page number navigation settings

When you have finished adding the CSS code and the script, you might want to change my default settings as per your requirements. So, in order to change the default settings, just follow the steps.

 perPage: 7,  
 numPages: 6,  
 var firstText ='First';  
 var lastText ='Last';  
 var prevText ='« Previous';  
 var nextText ='Next »';  
 }  

a. perPage

This will show how many posts will be shown on each page of your blog (7 by default).
b. numPages

This will show how many pages will be shown in the page navigation (6 by default).
c. var firstText, var lastText, var prevText and var nextText

These just the words that will show up to your visitors for navigation. So, you can type your own within the codes. (First, Last, Previous and Next).

Fixing the Labels

Blogger will show up 20 of your blog post on the label pages by default but you can also make this widget appear on label pages by just cutting down the value in perPage variable.

Find each occurrence of the following code snippet:

1:  expr:href='data:label.url'  

Replace it with the below code.

 expr:href='data:label.url + "?&amp;max-results=7"'  

Here 7 is the number of your blog posts that will appear on per page.

Lastly, click on Save Template.
You are done. Now, view your blog and happy blogging.
