I want to be able to subdivide my blog posts by subject matter, is this possible?

I have created a blog and it is getting very large and I want to be able to group it by subject matter

Hi John,

a Confluence space can only have one blog. There is no second one. But you can have more than one page, showing different posts from the blog.

Using the 'Blog Posts'-Macro you can filter on 

  • time frame
  • labels
  • authors
  • spaces

So, e.g., add labels to your blog posts and create different pages that filter the large blog on these labels.

Hi Thomas I tried this macro and it didn't seem to work. I added it to a different page and added the label.


And here is what the finished page looks like.

Have you added the label to your posts as well?

I have but normally when you start typing it picks up on existing labels and it didn't do this

Hi Thomas I think its because I am using this in my personal space and which has no blog and if I understand rightly this macro needs to be in the space where the blog resides

I think you can set the space(s) where the blog posts come from.

All sorted it works now and looks good thanks Thomas

Hi John,

I would recommend applying a label to each blog depending on its subject. You can then display the list of topics later using a Content by Label macro.

I hope this helps!



Have tried this Shannon and it seems to work. Thank you very much for your help

You're welcome John. Take care.
