How to remove Blog Posts from Home Page[Advanced Blogging]

 Once you have done enough research in Blogging, next you would think of developing it into a Website. With the number of posts counting everyday, I felt the need of a completely revamped home page. The Blog posts on the Home page were never of much relevance, the Traffic flew into specific Posts via Google or Facebook, and the Home Page went Idle. So I began thinking for ideas to develop a home page, and the thought of removing the Blog Posts from home page stuck on me. I tried Googling for such results, they provided solutions by Changing the Blog Posts date into the Future and setting to show only one post. This works to an extent, but spoils the "Blog Archive". Then I began experimenting on the HTML of the Blog to make the post disappear, and surprisingly found a result! Infact I'm surprised I couldn find this solution on Google before.

 As this Task requires a bit of Knowledge in HTML codes, I strongly recommend you not to use this unless you are used to editing HTML. The task is simple, and here are the steps involved.
  • -- Access the 'Edit HTML' page of your Blog[Blogger in my case].
  • -- Tick 'Expand Widget Templates'
  • -- Search for <b:widget id='Blog1' locked='true' title='Blog Posts' type='Blog'>
  • -- Now after every <includable id= '... '> Copy the Code
    <b:if cond='data:blog.url != data:blog.homepageUrl'>
    and Close the If - </b:if> before </b:includable>
  • -- That would do! Now you wont find any Blog posts at the Home Page.
