Creating a news item (blog post)

  4. Click in the large 'Rich Text' area, below the symbols 'B I U'. Type several sentences.

    (tick) Below the 'Rich Text' area are the page's Labels and Posting Day (which defaults to today). You don't need to change anything at this time.
  5. Click the 'Save' button.

What is a news item?
Confluence news items are special pages found in the 'news' section of each space. They can be announcements, journal entries, status reports or any other timely information you would categorise as news. News items are also known as 'blog posts'.
For more information about working with news, please see the documentation.
