In this documentation you'll read "news" and "blog posts". Technically both are the same. So if we use one term or the other, please don't be confused.
Creating a news item with Linchpin Enterprise News is as easy as creating a blog post inside a standard confluence. In fact, it's the same thing. For larger corporations the standard blog functionality is not enough to model a complex news concept. Linchpin Enterprise News offers a selection of macros to do that, along with tools for creating visually appealing dashboards and news pages, personalization for certain user groups or even users and a set of social features to increase their users' involvement.
Good looking content no matter where it's displayed
As someone who writes news you don't have to know exactly where your news will be displayed. Even if you insert a teaser image with Cover Stories in mind, that same news item will be displayed nicely within Corporate or Personal News Feeds.
Social features to increase involvement
In Cover Stories, Corporate and Personal News Feeds there's always the option to like, comment and share the news. People are used to this kind of functionality and pleased to use them in their intranet, too. Of course information like the "like status" or number of comments is shown consistently over all macros of Linchpin Enterprise News.
2.7 Release Notes
Please welcome our news hub!
Important when upgrading!
We are planning to remove the deprecated News Teaser macro with version 3.0. You’ll find a button for migrating old ones in the administration.
The news hub takes the place of our news center and inherits all its features. Additionally, you can easily create news directly from the hub and configure which information you want to show in the list view of your news. We have many ideas to further enhance the news hub, for example bringing your personal news subscriptions there. You can share your own ideas and help us prioritize: https://linchpin.canny.io/linchpin-enterprise-news
You can now delete spaces that have scheduled news (i.e., a corresponding "Linchpin Enterprise News workflow space" exists). Note: If you still can't delete the space, please save the space permissions (without changes) and try again.
Blog post preview doesn't show all elements for anonymous users (but honestly, who grants editing permission for news to anonymous users? )
There is a compatibility issue with the Brikit Theme. This shows when saving a blog post and results in lost metadata (e.g. teaser settings, sticky settings, publish time).
When a user subscribed all blog posts in her email settings, the user will receive a mention immediately after a blog post is created even if the blog post has not been approved.
When a user is mentioned in a blog post, that is part of an approval workflow, the user will receive a mention immediately. This happens even if the blog post has not been approved and might leak information to the specific user.
