linking to "new blog post" page from wiki content


Confluence: 4.1.2

Is it possible to make a link to "new blog post" (createblogpost.action) in wiki content body?

Currently I am making a link to but it depends on the context of Confluence which should be avoided.

I would like to make a relative link. And if possible populate the title of the new post with some template.

Thanks in advance.

I can't really guess the use case for this, but a user macro could be the way forward...

Browse to Confluence Admin | Configuration | User Macros

Add a new user macro...

## Macro title: New Blogpost
## Macro has a body: N
## Body processing: n/a
## Output: HTML
## Developed by: David Simpson [AppFusions]

## This is an example macro
## @param Title:title=Title|type=string|required=true|desc=The blogpost title

#set ( $blogpostTitle = $generalUtil.urlEncode($paramTitle) )
<a href="$req.contextPath/pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey=$space.key&title=$blogpostTitle ">$paramTitle</a>

Further details:

Thanks. It worked and gave me a hint to develop macros.
