Linchpin News Digest – Deliver intranet news via email

Among other things, the social intranet suite Linchpin enhances Confluence by offering users the opportunity to receive personalized company news in a visually appealing format. Linchpin News Digest is a new extension for Confluence and Linchpin that has just been launched by the //SEIBERT/MEDIA development team. The solution has not only been created to broadcast news in Linchpin Intranet but also deliver it to users via email on a regular basis. Here we look at the various use cases.

Migration strategies for Confluence, intranets and corporate wikis

Existing intranet and wiki systems in all companies are filled with content.

Most wiki-based content systems in organizations share certain challenges with regards to quality of content and structure.

While a wiki or wiki-based intranet gives enterprises the freedom they need for modern collaboration by enabling any team member to create content within the system quickly and easily, it can have its downsides. Here we look at how to get around them.

With Linchpin Theme you can easily customize Confluence to fit your unique company design, no coding required. Not only can you customize your Confluence instance theme, but also your Confluence-based extranet systems or even give individual spaces in your instances their own design. Using Linchpin Theme in this way helps you to better visually integrate Confluence into your existing tool landscape. Our development team has just delivered Linchpin Theme Version 2.13. In this article we’ll take a look at the new features this version has to offer.

Linchpin Navigation Menus 2.7: Extended flyout menus, icons for menu items and much more

Navigation menus are an important requirement for customers who use corporate intranets. However, the standard version of Confluence doesn’t offer many options that give you control over your navigation menus. This is where the Linchpin Navigation Menus app (previously called the Navigation Menu Editor) comes into play. It adds this much-needed functionality to Confluence, and along with the other central components of the Linchpin intranet suite, it extends Confluence to be a complete corporate intranet.

The app Linchpin Theme allows you adapt the look of your Confluence instance, Confluence-based intranet and extranet systems, or individual areas with individual themes and customization options without the need for re-programming.
