Replicate native blog post table of contents on a page?

We have started some blogs and are feeding them onto a page in our space using the {blog-posts} macro. Unfortunately, this macro does not allow for time intervals more sophisticated than "posts from the last week" or "posts from the last x number of days."

We will have a large collection of posts pretty quickly and would like to allow people to browse the archive from the page, rather than clicking through to 'viewrecentblogposts.action?key=SPACEKEY' in order to see the native blog table of contents.

How can we replicate this table of contents, which appears natively on 'viewrecentblogposts.action?key=SPACEKEY' on the blog page?

I didn't quite find the solution but this Adaptavist macro is a good stopgap for me. Hope it helps others.

There is no out of the box macro that shows this table of contents. You can always write a custom macro that searches for blog posts and displays a nice table of contents.

I digged up some code we wrote that shows a table of contents. It has nice parameters like:

space-key; The space to get the blog posts from

max-results; The maxium number of blog posts to display

min-age; The minimum age of the blog posts (for example; '30m', '6h', '30d', '10w'. m = minutes, h = hours, d = days, w = weeks)


link-length; The maximum length of the blog post title

labels; A comma separated list of labels, only blog posts with one or more of the labels are displayed

Thanks for the suggestions!
