This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Customising the Confluence Dashboard
How do I EDIT the actual page that is displayed as the Site Homepage? It displays the dashboard. I want to change one of the messages on the dashboard. How do I get it in edit mode?Yes, I am a confluence-administrator. There is a section on Team Calendars that 1) is inaccurate and 2 ) send to another out of date page. How do I edit "dashboard" ?
It's not a page. It's a block of code for displaying a dashboard. The link you've come from tells you how to amend the dashboard briefly - by hacking the code behind it (there's links on the details to that in the doc)
Your other option is to not use the dashboard, but create/reuse a dedicated space. A lot of us create a "system" space for shared stuff, and include a landing page to be used as a dashboard in there. Then you can edit it like any other page. That's also covered in the doc you came from.
So I should find the file to edit here: <CONFLUENCE-INSTALLATION>\confluence\decorators ? I don't want to change look and feel, or templates. I just want to fix the content in one panel... Would I be better off just grepping for the phrase I want to change to find the file it is in?
Ok, that's not the dashboard, that's a gadget the dashboard contains.
I don't know which gadget it is. If it's the "welcome" gadget, then you can edit the text from the admin interface. If it's the calendar add-on injecting something (or any other gadget), you're going to need to unpack the calendar add-on and change the text in there.
