Use the Blog Posts Macro
To add the Blog Posts macro:
When editing , select from the toolbar
Find the item to be inserted and select it
You can also type / on the page to bring up the same list you'd see by selecting from the toolbar.
To edit the Blog Posts macro:
Select the macro placeholder. The floating toolbar appears.
Select Edit. The right panel opens.
Modify the parameters. Your changes are saved as you go.
Resume editing the page, and the panel closes.
Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output.
If the parameter name used in Confluence Cloud storage format or wikimarkup is different than the label used when inserting macros using the browser or the slash command, it will be listed below in brackets (example).
Content Type to Display
Specify how far back in time Confluence should look for the blog posts to be displayed.
Restrict to these Labels
Filter the results by label. The macro will display only the blog posts which are tagged with the label(s) you specify here.
Restrict to these Authors
Filter the results by author. The macro will display only the blog posts which are written by the author(s) you specify here.
Restrict to these Spaces
@self, i.e. the space which contains the page on which the macro is coded
This parameter allows you to filter content by space. The macro will display only the pages which belong to the space(s) you specify here.
When specifying a personal space, remember to use the tilde (~) sign in front of the username, such as ~jbloggs or ~email@example.com.
Maximum Number of Blog Posts
Specify the maximum number of results to be displayed. Note that the results are sorted first, and then the maximum parameter is applied.
Specify how the results should be sorted. If this parameter is not specified, the sort order defaults to descending order (newest first) based on the creation date.
Select to change the sort from descending to ascending order (oldest first). Use this parameter in conjunction with the Sort By parameter. This parameter is ignored if the Sort By parameter is not specified.
In storage format and wikimarkup a value of true changes the sort order.
Wiki markup example
Wiki markup is only supported in the legacy editor.
Wiki markup is useful when you need to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.
Macro name: blog-posts
Macro body: None.
