- Unzip the
<confluence-install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/confluence/setup/atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip(for Confluence 4.3.x and earlier) or go to

- Unjar the
doctheme-X.X.X.X.jarin the unzipped
- Once unjarred, edit the
Comment the following line in the file:
- Save the file.
- Jar the file back to
- Zip the
atlassian-bundled-plugins.zipback (for Confluence 4.3.x and earlier only)

If you need a guide to help with the editing files within JAR archives, you can refer to this documentation. However, please keep in mind that the Documentation Theme plugin is part of bundled plugins. Hence, it is stored in a special place, which is located at
<confluence-install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/confluence/setup/atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip. Therefore, if you are following the guide, please make sure the paths are correct.
