Confluence space as main company blog

How can I get Confluence to look just like a blog ? I want to have a space that will simply be a public blog, with all entries shown one after another. Is there a template already existing for this ?

I want to basically add new 'Blog' pages and they will automatically be posted to the main Home page for that Space, all posts appearing one under another.

Hi George,

Long time since you asked this question. For anyone stumbling upon this I'm just flagging Instant Websites for Confluence Cloud which addresses your need.

Cheers,

Sounds like you just need to use the blogpost macro on the home page. You may want to look into the parameters for this macro if you need to pull in blog posts from other spaces. You could also set this home page as the home page for the wiki so it's the first thing people see when logging in.

wow, that was exactly it!! nice, thank you very much

Here's an example of a public Confluence site that uses the Zen Foundation Plugin and has a blog:

AppFusions are an Atlassian Partner so I'm sure they'd be happy to answer any questions you have.

You might want to take a look at Skinning Confluence. I'd say a combination of custom themes and some macros can make this work :)
