you might try the translation addon (Marketplace) and find the relevant dialog. Another way could be to find the translation files of the Confluence installation and change it there. But this implies that you have to apply this change after each upgrade.

It's possible, but not easy & not out of the box.




Thanks for the reply and sorry for late response, but my actual need is not translation.

I want to show a information to the user (ie) I want to inform the user to to do certain steps (workaround) to overcome issues.

I noticed that a dialog box is appearing before proceeding to the issue, so I had a plan to add information in the dialog box. So that user will notice and perform those workaround before doing the action.


In simple words, I want add "1. GoTo -> xyz -> click save" in the dispalying dialog box.
(ie) Any possible to edit the HTML content of the dialog box ?
