How to have multiple Blog Posts on the same page

 Do you know how to make two separate blog post "areas" on the same page or do any of you have a macro for this purpose?

 

It should work as two separate blogs, on the same page. So when adding a blog for topic A or B it will not appear under the same area, but in two different - e.g. two separate columns.

Thank you very much.

Hi Anders,

have you tried using the Content by Label Macro? Since Confluence 5.8 you can define define to display pages (or blog post) with a certain label (using CQL).

Simply create multiple content by label macros on your page and define the type (e.g. blog) and the wanted labels to be displayed.

Hope that helps.

Best,
Nils

Alternatively, check out the Blog Posts Macro.  I'm not as familiar with the Content by Label macro that @Nils Bier (K15t Software) suggests but I believe they will both serve your purpose. 

Rather than using Confluence Query Language (CQL), which may be preferable to some users, the Blog Posts macro has a defined set of parameter fields to choose from including time frame, labels and authors. 

Instead of placing different blog posts on the same page - which certainly can be accomplished with the Blog Posts Macro as well,  and is the best choice for some use cases - we use it also to separate blogposts (perhaps because they have different authors or are on different categories of subject matter) on different pages in the same space.

So, you have options!
