Petra Cuypers-Oberthuer March 7, 2024

I would need a date field on every blog post.

 

Can I set up a template that contains the date field?

Hello @Petra Cuypers-Oberthuer 

While there is no direct way to add templates to your blog, the workaround is:

  • Start creating a page with a template and save it
  • When in edit mode, click on the arrow within the Update button
  • Navigate to Update as -> Blog
  • Click on Save

Thanks @Perisic Nikola , I tried it and it works. 

But I'm not sure if users will accept these additional steps. But at least it's a workaround.

I agree with you that it might be confusing for them to do this. You can always post in community the feature request for Atlassian to take a look at. 

Take a look at: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-18668?filter=98153

When you try to create a request, it will guide you to ask on community about this.

@Petra Cuypers-Oberthuer You could also include the steps to publish the page as a blog on your template, so your users will have them handy. I would also include a step to delete the instructions before publishing.

Unfortunately I cannot find the "Update Button". Where is it?

@patrick_lehmann On a new page, you have a Publish button (at the top right of the page when in Edit mode) to publish the page for the first time. Once you publish the page, this button changes to say Update. The button has an arrow on the right side to access a dropdown menu of options to change how you re-publish the page.
