Make the default new page a blog post?

I'd like to force the "Create" button to make a blog post, by default, rather than a new page. We're using the new editor now, and a lot of my team are missing the sidebar and just making pages when they mean to make blog posts. Anyone have a way of making this work easily?

Hi, welcome to the Community!

There is currently no way of changing what the Create button does in Confluence Cloud. A couple suggestions exist in our public Jira instance that relate to this, however:

As somewhat of a workaround, it is possible to use the Blog Posts macro on a page to add a button that skips the Create dialogue box and goes straight to a new Blog post:

image.pngI've used the fields on the left to filter down the criteria so no posts show in the feed. When there's no posts to display, the macro adds the "Create blog post" button. This would require your team to view whatever page this macro is on to get the button, so it may not be the exact solution you're looking for. But it's possible if you have a newsfeed page for your blog posts anyway, adding a "blank" Blog Posts macro above your existing news items could provide an easy way to create new posts.


Thanks! I think that will work, I'll just put a create blog post button right at the top of the front page.
