Using Better Blogs for Confluence Cloud

The Better Blogs configuration is found in the Space Settings menu, under the Integrations section.

From there you will see a link to Better Blogs.

Once you click the Better Blogs link, you will be navigated to a page where groups and users can be added to subscribe them to all new blogs in the space.

By subscribing groups of users, any new user who joins that group, will be automatically subscribed.


Disable blog update notifications


If you would like blog subscribers to only be notified of new blogs and not further updates, check the “Disable blog update notifications.” checkbox.

This will ensure that all new blogs from the point that configuration is saved, will not receive updates. This is done by not adding the listed users or groups as watchers to new blogs.

Note that users and groups may receive update notifications for old blogs as they are still subscribed as watchers.

Disable blog subscription opt-out


Blog subscribers can opt out of blog subscriptions per space. They can do so from the bottom of the blog email. Space admins now have the configuration option to disable the opt-out if required.

Mail Logs



The status of blog subscription emails can now be viewed on the “Mail Logs” tab. It will show the date and time of the last sent email from the latest blog.

If a blog email fails to send you can filter the logs with the Mail status “ERROR” and re-send just the errored emails.
