    Ann (or anyone else!) - what’s the perspective on the use of blogs within Confluence? It seems they haven’t been used much on this wiki, but saw your tip here. They seem useful where you want to contribute something without editing page content but where a comment would be too brief.

    Used your tip to add a link on this page. Maybe you could improve how it looks though.

      To date we have not used blog posts extensively on the NCI Wiki. However, the training team began using blog posts on April 12. On this page you can see how the team is displaying blog posts on a regular wiki page, using the blog-posts macro. If you click the link for the blog post (Apr 12 for the first one), you'll see the post itself.

        Thanks Ann. More generally many blogs are used for commentary - that was the kind of usage I thought might be useful.
