Is it possible to rename "child pages" in the Confluence UI?


We use Confluence as a documentation authoring tool and would like to rename the UI field "Child pages" to "Related information", as "child pages" does not mean anything to our audience.

Does anyone know if it's possible to change the field names in the UI?

I'd recommend the method used here: Changing boilerplate text in Confluence

You'll likely need to change the following items:

hide.children=Hide Child Pages
show.children=Show Child Pages Pages
number.of.children={0} Child Pages Child Page
children.count=Child Pages ({0})

Hi David,

Thanks for your suggestion. All was going well until I tried to run the jar command, at which point I got "jar is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

Do I need to install the Confluence Plugin Development Kit before I can build a plugin?



Ususally you can just rename a .jar to a .zip and unzip it (then rezip the contents of the unzipped folder, and rename to .jar).
