How do I move a blog post to another space?

Rather than deleting a blog post we would like to move it to an "archive space". Is this possible?

All blog posts older than 1 year should be moved to this space, so users can still see the content.

Hi Marcel, it's currently not possible to move blog posts to other spaces, I'm afraid. If you'd like to have that feature implemented, make sure to leave your thoughts/vote for this improvement request: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-2455

:( I have voted for the improvement

Hi

Reading the  the documentation on this page about moving a blog

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF56/Working%20with%20Blog%20Posts

Documentation states that

******************************************************************************************************************************************

"Editing a blog post is similar to editing any other page in Confluence. However, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • You cannot change the date of an existing blog post. You can only backdate when adding a blog post.
  • You cannot move a blog post to another space.(my emphasis)
  • A blog post has no parent."

*******************************************************************************************************************************************

It then goes to advise how to move a blog post in the following paragraph:

*********************************************************************************************************************************************

"Moving a blog post

If you create a blog post in the incorrect space, or want to reorganise your spaces, you can move an individual blog post to another space. 

To move a blog post go to the post and choose Tools > Move and select the new destination space.

You will need the 'Delete blog' permission in the current space and 'Add blog' permission in the new (destination) space to do this. "

******************************************************************************************************************************************

Might want to clarify/reword.

 

Cheers

Thanks for pointing that out! It must have been missed when we added the functionality to move blogs, and updated the docs. I've removed the incorrect line now :)

This has now been implemented in Confluence 5.5 and above: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-2455

But I still don't see how to do it? I'm using Confluence 5.6.5 Server.

Hi Boris! I found this in the docs (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/doc/Blog+Posts): "To move a blog post, go to the post and choose * * * > Move and select the new destination space. You'll need the 'Delete blog' permission in the current space, and 'Add blog' permission in the new (destination) space to do this." (* * * is the three dots in the top right hand corner that gives you a dropdown menu) It sounds like you might not have permission to delete the blog from the current space, so I'd start by checking that. If you're still stuck you can always raise a Support Request at https://support.atlassian.com, and we can help you out :)
