Make news posts simply labelled pages and allow all pages to be accessed by date


    • We collect Confluence feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      At present, you can only really get to a news page by it's date. The fact that news pages are so different to normal pages can be confusing for many users (eg. the question keeps getting asked: "how to i create a link to my news page") - people expect linking to a news page to be the same as linking to a normal page (eg. via title).

      Could news pages be perfectly normal pages but with a label of "news" in 1.5?

      If so, you could then choose which labels would show the calendar - eg. you might want "annoucements" and "news" to show the calendar.

      News pages, now being normal pages with a set label, could be linked to like everything else.

      When putting in a date URL it would simply list all pages who's label is set to associate them with a calendar (unless specifying a specific label in the URL in which case it would list all pages with that label on that date regardless of whether they are associated with a calendar).

      This would, for example, allow you to browse changes to a site using the calendar - you'd see on the calendar when pages where changed, click the date and it would show or list the pages for that date.

      Although this idea is embryonic, I tink it would help standardise the way everything works and add lots of flexibility if further developed.

      Any comments?
