Under space tools you have a configure sidebar where you can remove the Blog link. This will not prevent users from creating blogs. If you want to do that then you need to remove the permission to add/delete blog and disable the blueprint.
Ann, it's great that you can add shortcuts but the problem for me (and it sounds like for Angela) is that we want to REMOVE items from the sidebar.
We use Confluence for our product documentation and I'm now in a situation where I have items on the sidebar that I don't want my users to have (e.g. Blog) or don't make sense to my users (e.g. Gliffy Diagram).
Can you please confirm that there is no way to turn these items off for non-logged in users? We are running Confluence Cloud.
My team is experiencing the same problem – we had removed the Blog item from old Confluence server because we use Confluence exclusively for public-facing help docs. Now there's an icon to a blog we don't have, and there's no obvious way to remove it. This is confusing to users who show up looking for help documentation.
Is there any way to remove that Blog icon from the sidebar?
I can confirm that we don't provide a way to remove the Blog link from the sidebar in Confluence Cloud.
We have had a lot of feedback regarding the new look and feel for Confluence Cloud. Please see our response on: Stop testing on us please - No more daily changes!!!
Thanks for all of your input - it does influence decisions.
It looks like they did resolve this and offer a way to turn off the Blog link in the sidebar. As long as you are an admin of that space, hovering over the Sidebar area should reveal a pencil icon near the bottom. After clicking on that, you can reorder the Pages and blog links or remove them.
Are you able to see the pencil edit icon in the space's sidebar? Make sure you have fully expanded the left navigation bar, there are a few "layers" of collapsing so drag the right edge over as needed. You also have to be hovering over the sidebar to make the icon show up at the bottom.
Hope that helps!
With the new Confluence layout, we won't be able to remove the blog from the sidebar. We have created a feature request for this request:
If you think there are specific things in the new design we can address, feel free to click Give feedback in the sidebar to share your thoughts directly with the team. I hope that with your feedback we can keep improving the new Confluence experience.
Why not answer why the heck do I need comments, likes, or a blog for software documentation?
I want powerful documentation that links to my software project. That's it.
I especially don't want my users getting confused looking at an irrelevant default overview page, or clicking a blog tab that should not ever exist.
