Setting default page title when creating a new space.


We have installed confluence version 3.5.6 and german language pack v 1.19.1. Everything seems fine - except when I creat e new space - default page title of homepage is set to Home instead of Startseite.
I have already tried to modify in File - but nothing fixed my problem. Can anybody help me ? I would like to modify Is this possible ?

Kind regards,

Hi Gabriele,

The default homepage title can be modified via the source:



package com.atlassian.confluence.spaces.listeners;


public class InitialSpaceContentListener implements EventListener
    private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(InitialSpaceContentListener.class);

    public static final String DEFAULT_HOMEPAGE_TITLE = "Home";  <---- This is the place to change the 

You can also recompile the:

private String defaultSpaceHomepageTitle = "Home"; and change this.

Hope this helps.

This will work, but it seems a bit sucky that we have an i18n definition for and then ignore it and hard-code to "Home".

I will see if there is a bug report in Confluence for this - we should be able to fix it.
