Since a recent update, clicking the Create button no longer brings up a dialog box asking what type of page you want to create. Instead, it opens a new page window and shows Blog Post as the top item in a navigation panel on the right side of the screen.
Clicking Blog Post does, in fact, open a new blog post page. No problem with that at all. In addition, though, I end up with a blank page draft that I then have to delete. What I am doing wrong?
Answered my own question, and it's 100% counter-intuitive:
1) In Confluence, from the Spaces menu choose the space in which your blog post is to go.
2) From the Recent menu, Choose Draft.
3) If you have NO pages in the list, you are given the option to "Add new page" which does bring up the popup dialog that lets you choose the type of page you want. Choose Blog Post.
4) If you have ANY pages in the Draft list, you can't access that popup dialog, so just click "Create", choose Blog Post from that screen, then delete the unpublished regular page it created at the same time.
Atlassian, for those of us who are heavy users of the Blog section, this is really annoying.
Particularly frustrating as when you make a new blog post in the "recommended" way, it leaves a blank (unused, by-definition-unwanted) page in your drafts without telling you, just proliferating cruft in your drafts. I really wonder about the QA at confluence, they definitely don't love UX over there.
There isn't, at least not for me. This is what I see:
If I click "Create" it just creates a new page in the space. I can choose Blog Post from the menu on the right of the screen, which does create the blog post page. It leaves the original empty page in draft, which I then have to delete with "Delete Unpublished Page".
