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)

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.
