How do I modify the content of a confluence email notification header and footer?


I'm trying to add a header and footer to a confluence email notification.  Within the confluence-email-notifications-plugin-8.4.6.jar file, I've been editing the following files:







After updating the jar file with the edited files, I restart confluence and trigger a notification to be sent.  However, I'm not seeing any of the changes I made within the notication email.  Does it look like I'm missing a step, or editing the wrong jar file.  We are using Confluence version 5.10.8, and I'm editing the confluence/WEB-INF/atlassian-bundled-plugins/confluence-email-notifications-plugin-8.4.6.jar file.


Thanks for the help.

It sounds like you are doing everything as described in: Customizing Email Templates

During the next restart, please try: How to clear Confluence plugins cache . I have a theory that the confluence-email-notifications plugin is being loaded from the cache and that's why it's not picking up the changes.

Thanks Ann.  I gave this a try, but still no luck.  It so strange why I can't see any changes.  Even making a change to the file where it's plain to see that some of the footer text is being pulled from has no effect.
