For Confluence users on cloud who cannot add custom macros, I have found a workaround. 

If you use the "Blog Posts" macro with a query that returns no blog posts, Confuence will display generic copy and a "Create blog post"  button that allows the user to create a new blog post.

 

To create a query that returns no blog post, you can restrict the blog posts to a label that exists (if you make up a label that no other page uses, you'll get an error) but is not used on any blog post entry.

Thank you, Laure.  This is a useful workaround!

This no longer seems to work :(

Nice workaround!.  Just used it on Confluence Server v7.4, and it did the trick!

I'm patiently waiting for something to come avail. on cloud.

Is there anyway to create the Blog Post button for Confluence Cloud?

I don't have persmissions to create user macros and the result of adding the "Blog Posts" macro with an unused label was too big, so I found a third solution: a web link.

Before you add it you have to know the spacekey for your Confluence space and this can be found by looking at the page source. In most browsers this can be opened by right clicking on a page inside your space and choose "View page source" or something similar. Then you just search for "spacekey" and will most likely find something like this:

<a href="/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=TSPM&amp;fromPageId=150297126&amp;src=quick-create"

Remember that spacekey (TSPM in the example above) and follow these steps:

  • Go to the page where you want to be able to create a blog post
  • Klick "Insert link" and choose Web link
  • Paste this into the Address field: 
    /pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey=
  • Add the spacekey for your Confluence space directly after the = character
  • Change the Link text to something like "New blog post"
  • Click Save

Voilá!

Hi Fiyyaz - you haven't said which product this relates to, so it's difficult for people to help you. 

Are you asking about Confluence or JIRA or something else?

Where exactly do you want to put the button to show?

What do you want to happen when people click it?

Hi Sam, 

 

I am using Confluence.  I would like to put the button on the Confluence pages. The button should create a new blog post. 

I don't want to click always on "create" on the menue bar.  Is there any solution for this problem?

It you have Confluence server, you could create a user macro for this.

Then you can add your macro to any page you want.

This is a what you can put in the 'template' field when creating the macro:

## @param space:title=Space|type=spacekey
<a href="/pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey=$paramspace" class="aui-button"><span>Create Blog Post</span></a>

 Adapted from: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-do-I-add-a-Create-Blog-button-to-a-page/qaq-p/148683

Hi Sam,

 

thanks a lot. It works :)

 

Best regards

Current version that works for me with Confluence Server 7.0.1 is:

## @param space:title=Space|type=spacekey
<a href="/pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey=$space.key" class="aui-button"><span>Create Blog Post</span></a>
Like # people like this

thanks a lot. It works :)
