I am writing a manual in Confluence. I was checking out how to convert it to a Blog, I converted in error but now I cannot put it back into the area/page in the Project area I was working with it.

Thanks Jimmy

Hi @Jimmy Whelan welcome to the Atlassian community.

I believe you have selected the correct space where the blog should reside. May we request the error message or the screenshot to assist you better?

I had the User Manual in the User Documentation section but when I created the Blog the manual was moved out from there. I expected that if the Blog was created the original manuscript of the Manual would remain where I created it, that is in the User Documentation section/page.

Hi @Jimmy Whelan thank you for the reply and details. When ever we try to convert to a blog, confluence gives a heads up: " Take this content and publish it as a new blog post. All comments and likes will be carried over to the new blog. If you don’t want those comments to carry over, delete them before converting". To my knowledge on this bit, once we convert to a blog, the original residency of the article will be permanently moved to new location.

@G subramanyam  thanks for your update.  I had planned to move the manual to Google Docs or MS Word (not users of the manual have Confluence).

This is not possible now from your reply. Would you have any recommendations?

Hi @Jimmy Whelan my reply is from my exploration and sorry to hear that didn't answered your query. My options would be to check with your:

1) In-house confluence admin OR

2) Raise an Atlassian support ticket OR

3) Let's hear from other active members if they have any work around or options they have explored.

Have a great day ahead and I will watch this thread to read an accepted answer from other members.

@Jimmy Whelan I am running into the same issue. Were you successful in finding a way to convert the blog back into a regular page? Anyone?
