Disable blog item when creating a new space

Is there a way to disable the link to blog items when creating new spaces?

By creating a new space with the global look and feel, the new space will get a link to a blog overview right under 'Pages'. This item should be removed, since we use another tool for blogging in our company.

Do not know the "official way", but some custom JS will do the trick: AJS.$('li[data-collector-key="spacebar-blogs"]').hide(); :) Needs to be added either as custom HTML snippet or inside the Confluence site layout

Hi! Thanks for this hint, but this would apply to all spaces. We only need a solution for new spaces as old spaces should be able to view their old blog posts.

I see 2 options (to solve the issue): - Have a custom space templates set to your old spaces - To modify page layout and implement a date check for space creation - getCreationDate for Space object (as the https://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-confluence/latest/index.html?com/atlassian/confluence/spaces/SpaceManager.html is available in the Page layout and could be referenced) and depending on a space's date created have this JavaScript set. Very hacky... and probably there is a better way:)

Are you trying to remove the link to "blogs" on a sidebar, just under the link to "pages"?

Iknow this is an old post but in case anyone wants a solution, click the configure side bar and then on the x next to the blog post link. That should hide it. It is a per space change however.
