Creating a copy of the MilkyWay template allows you to experiment with it without compromising the original.

  • make a copy of the rhuk_milkyway folder and rename it
  • edit templateDetails.xml to add your own details, remove the links to non existing files
  • add the <filename>images/mw_readon_rtl.png</filename> entry
  • Perform a search and replace on all files WITHIN THE NEW FOLDER to replace "/rhuk_milkyway/" with "/your_templates_name/". This will update all links in all pages and CSS files
  • Create an image with your logo, and save it into the images folder. Delete the mw_joomla_logo.png file
  • open css/template.css > edit div#logo style updating the background: url to point to your file
  • edit templateDetails.xml to replace the mw_joomla_logo.png file with yours.
  • zip your template directory
  • go to the extension manager, select the zipped directory and install the package
  • assign the template, and preview!
