    Nice add-on to pimp up blog Posts. We're using it on our Dashboard and it's super easy to use.

    Just updated to the 2.0 Version. This version makes better use of the width available for the abstract & image by placing the author info at the top. Some suggestions: The blog title is now displayed below the teaser image, it would be better (or configurable) to have the title displayed above the teaser image. And if the blog space could be displayes eg. close to the labels / date it would be even better. I didn't get the Image/Text ratio setting to work. My images are always displayed over the full width. Still 5 stars (if this would be possible...) Great job!

    Nice functionalities and easy to use. However, it ended up significantly impacting the load time of the front page on our Confluence 5.7.4. Disabling it improved the Dashboard load time from 5.5s to 0.4s in performance tests with no cache. Would have given 4 stars if not for the performance issue.

    Hello Nicolas, thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately performance issues can have multiple root causes. Do you have similar issues with the bundled blog post macro? Please feel free to contact us through https://www.scandio.de/en/atlassian/plugins-en/ and we will help you with that issue.

    Excellent add on. Is there a way we can reduce the font size or have it customized where the user can select it as 'heading 1' or 'heading 2' or 'paragraph'. The size of the font can be distracting on the home page, otherwise we have no issues.

    Hi Bosco, thanks for your feedback! The font size is not configurable at the moment, but you can always change the layout with CSS in the global style sheet. Write me an email or click on the "Ask a question" button in the Support tab and I will help you with that.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server app pricing work?

    Server products and apps are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and app licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If app pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing?

    Apps are billed based on the number of users in your host product. The app tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host product. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for apps. Even if fewer users want to use the app than your host product license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server apps, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host product. Server apps are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server apps, you can extend your app trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the app listing in UPM from your Atlassian host product, and you're all set.

    How can I buy apps for my legacy JIRA Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy app pricing is no longer available. You have two options for app purchasing:

    • Purchase the app at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the app at the same tier.
