On our confluence we had Daily Dose of dilberts gadget installed on our dashboard and every morning we used to get a new dilbert on our dashboard. I presume it was displayed using some plugin.
From today morning the dilbert has stopped appearing although i can see only the header "Daily Dose of dilbert". No image below it though.
Can anyone help me rectify this issue.
Saw this article and thought I would answer it
we just have a shell script that use curl on Linux that pulls the daily image down via a crontab and the places it in the image/logo directory in confluence. We then just add a link to the image using the url as the confluence logo directory is accessible.
The crontab runs once a day, so we always have the daily strip.
its fairly simple to setup
It’s a fairly simple solution, I have listed a shell script we use which is crontab’d to run each day, the caveat is our instance of confluence is run on Linux. All we do is pull the image via a HTTP connection and in our network I just use our HTTP proxy server to get it for me as we are behind a firewall and our confluence server does not have direct access to the internet. The image is then placed in the same location as where the confluence standard logo images are stored that you can use for the confluence server, this way it’s easy to then reference the image via the confluence front end via one of the macro’s. Let me know if you need anything else in terms of info.

Its a image marco in confluence and the URL links to the image on our confluence server.
The shell script above runs once a day to download the latest dilbert image and then stores that local on our confluence server.
Hope that helps.
