Confluence Documentation is created in the form of blogs instead of pages using sphinxcontrib-conflu


I am building confluence documentation using sphinxcontrib-confluencebuilder.
Documentation is getting generated in the confluence but it is documented in the form of "blogs" instead of "pages". 

I am using sphinx version-4.2.0, sphinxcontrib-confluencebuilder -1.7.0.

Pls, let me know if any config is required to generate documentation in "pages".
extensions = [

confluence_publish = True
confluence_space_key = 'DEMO'
confluence_server_url = 'https://<..>'

Thank you!!!

Hi @Divyank Mahalle welcome to the Atlassian community.

May I request you to contact the sphinx-contrib contact team for the same.

Hi @G subramanyam ,

It's now confirmed that sphinxcontrib-confluencebuilder creating pages only and not the blogs while publishing the docs in the confluence.

But while the docs are getting published in confluence, pages are created in Legacy editor instead of the new editor .

Is there any way I can select a new editor as default because I need to convert each page to a new editor after it is getting published in confluence.

Again the issue is, even if the page is now converted to the new editor after that I run the command "make confluence" again all pages which are converted to the new editor are getting converted back to the legacy editor.

I am creating a doc for more than 100+scripts using sphinxcontrib-confluencebuilder.
