Do blog posts have drafts and read more options?

So, I'm just starting with blogging with Confluence, and it works good.

But there a few items missing I guess.

(don't mind me saying but I'm a Wordpress blogger so a bit spoiled)

So... drafts.... does that exist? Most of my time I'm just typing away... and want to read it the next day before really publishing it. :-)

And the other thing is read more.... does that exist?

When I write blogs I write big articles. So in the overview, it might not be handy to have very big articles on the main page. But just small chapters with read more links.

Hi Theo,

Confluence doesn't currently have the abiliity to save and resume drafts of blog posts. Confluence does create a snapshot of any unsaved changes at intervals while you're creating or editing a page or blog, but it sounds like you're looking to save a blog post, then open it up to a wider audience once its ready for publishing. What you could do is 'draft'/write your blog in the form of a locked down page, then copy its content to a new blog post in your space of choice. Hope that helps.

Also in terms of 'Read More' do you mean something like an expand/collapse functionality, or perhaps links that just point to separate blog posts or pages for more on the topic?

Well more like the wordpress feature that you can read on a multi-blog page the headers from each blog and that you can click read more to open the actual article.

I have seen options to automate this with a Atlassian plugin, but it would be better if this would be possible right from the blog page.

Hi Wilfried,

Which plugin is it?
