Unable to add text to blog post


I am able to add a blog post to a space but unfortunately i can't seem to be able to add a Title or any text.  The only thing i seem to be able to do is select a colour from the menu.

All help appreciated

It sounds like this might be a permissions issue(?)

Do you know if you have proper rights to add a blog post to the space/page in question?


Hi Darryl


Thanks for the quick response. 

I have taken a look at the permissions on the space setting and can see that i have both Blog add and delete permissions against my Individual user.

When i add the blog i can see the text 'Give this page a title' but am unable to enter any text, also the menu options are greyed out.




Have you tried, as a test, to create a blog post on a different space to see if the result is the same?

I'm unable to recreate, but variables between our two environments may be different. I do notice when I create a new blog post on a "legacy" space, it uses the new editor. That said, the fact that you're seeing so much greyed out/unavailable really sounds like permissions somewhere...



Will give it a go from another space.  

Thanks for the help 



I have the exact same issue as the OP. I have tried to create a blog post in multiple spaces and have the same issue. I have checked my permissions and as an administrator I should have add and delete permissions in all spaces, 


Does anyone have any suggestions?




I also have the same issue - Has this been resolved?
