    Ok so when people view my blogger i want them to see an about me or just like a welcome page... I don't want them to see all of my posts.. I have labels on the posts so each is catagorized and the labels are at the top of my blogger.. So they click the one they want and everything that has to do with that pops up.. So pretty much my question is how do i make it so they can't see all of my posts when they view my blogger and instead show a welcome screen? Any questions about what i mean please ask.. Thank you!

    My first advice would be to man up and get a self hosted domain. But since I use Blogger for 2.0 purposes, I guess you might be asking for that reason too.

    I'm not sure how you can do it exactly the way that you want, but you can get close by adding a Text element above any post elements in your layout. Write up your text (make sure that your theme color will work with the text color you've selected) and change the number of posts that your blog displays down to 1.

    This way you've got your text body (hopefully it's pretty big) and you are only displaying your most recent blog post.

    Goto Blogger Dashboard and then Setting ,There "Formating " then select 0 posts and save it.

    Now Goto > Design > Edit Html.
    Click the Download Full Template link and you will have a backup on your computer.

    - Then, scroll down past the stylesheet and find:
    </head>

    - As the last thing before </head> insert a conditional.
    <b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
    <style>


    .status-msg-wrap {display:none}
    </style>
    </b:if>

    - You should have this:

    <b:if cond='data:blog.url == data:blog.homepageUrl'>
    <style>
    .status-msg-wrap {display:none}
    </style>
    </b:if>
    </head>

    - Preview, Save, View Blog.

    Now add widgets to show which link your visitors can view !

    Dear goto the Edit html and follow the instruction and then you have to add Widgets by going to " Page element " and then there you have to add manual link or any thing you like for example check this website as there is no post

    are you talking about the top banner? like where it says home,tips and tricks,forum ect... Or below it? If you are talking about the banner idk how to do that.. Because when you do a page like that you cant make different posts.. its just all one page

    Check the recent release ! That is a widgets under which all links are added !

    I have hide some of the posts and visitors only know that recent releases are the only posts I have but that are my manual link placement.

    Dear if you like to have this types of links " like Tips tricks forum,Home etc. you need to download blogger templates"

    Download templates from http://www.premiumbloggertemplates.com/

    This site provides free blogger templates try one of your favourite and then follow their instruction to edit links and for hiding posts you need to follow my instruction that I have posted at the first !

    Ya as you like gadgets which can be added by going to page element tab and there click add gadgets and then you will get much options like " Link Lis,HTML widgets,Popular post, etc."

    so you can add gagets like link list then there you have to place Title and link

    For link ,copy the link of your post and paste it there and for title type the title of your post !

    Now you have to do is save and after saving hold the widgets with one click bring it down to the blog post space !

    the best thing in blogger is the ability of user to possibly tweak the design and format of their blog.:D
