It would be a good idea, to set up this tutorial page like the tutorial for the [[http://docs.joomla.org/Tutorial:Customising_the_JA_Purity_template|JA_Purity template]]! That would make it more easy to understand. That page also presents more information about the template itself, which again makes it more easy to make changes.

Basic Additions

As this happens to be what I'm doing (hijacking the milkyway template for own devices), I'll attempt some updates here:

The Page Background

In the file, <root>/templates/rhuk_milkyway/css/white_bg.css there is some code:

#page_bg {
background: #COLOR;

Change "COLOR" to whatever color you want the site background to be (the big window background that exists "around" your joomla site"). Here's a reference of some colors. Corsulian 15:21, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

Set up this page like

It would be a good idea, to set up this tutorial page like the tutorial for the [template]! That would make it more easy to understand. That page also presents more information about the template itself, which again makes it more easy to make changes. JanEnEm 09:00, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Copyright Notices in Footer

Usually, I copy and paste the Copyright notice into the index.php file at the bottom of the main template site. This works and html, too. Just look up the Copyright notice, I mean search for it in the files and copy and paste it wherever you want it.
