    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.
