Using the Confluence Publish Plugin for Blog posts

Can anyone provide me any guidance on using the Confluence Publish Plugin for blog posts? It seems to do what I want, but I wasn't able to actually figure out how to use it. Thanks!

The Confluence Publish Plugin creates a blogpost from a page including all attachments.

In Confluence you have no draft publish workflow for wikipages as well as blogposts. The workaround for wiki pages is to restrict the viewing permissions only for the current user and when editing is finished to change the viewing permissions to all users.

But blogposts inherit the viewing permissions from the space. So you have no chance to hide a blogpost. That is the idea of this plugin.

  1. You create a wiki page
  2. change the viewing rights only to you (you have to do this manually) and
  3. when the text is ready for publishing, you just create a blogpost from this wikipage (You will find this function in the Menu Tools on every wiki page)

I hope this will help you.

Thanks! I didnt realize that the command to create a blog entry was under the Tools menu. Doh!

Hi Matt,

After installing the add-on, you need to configure it:


Then, navigate to a space then to space tools. You'll see the publish menu menu in the content tools section. Documentation has good images:

Hope that helps.

I might be wrong, but I think you're referring to a different plugin? I was talking about this one:

Not this one:

There's no doc on the former, but it looks like it was created by an Atlassian staffer (Matthew Jensen).
