Hi. This should only happen in the PmWiki/ group for pages from the 
documentation. It should not happen in other groups. 

We somehow assumed that the PmWiki/ group will be reserved for the 
documentation, while the Main/ and other groups, will contain the site's own

Edit your own wiki page [[PmWiki.GroupFooter]] on your site. This text is from 
the line starting with >>bgcolor=#ffe... to the end. 

This page has also a code that displays a WikiTrail on pages that are linked 
to from PmWiki.DocumentationIndex, you may remove it either.

There are also some settings in the [[PmWiki.GroupHeader]] which you may want 
to remove.

Note also that pages that come with the distribution are harder to delete from 
within the wiki. You can either blank them (empty), or you have to remove 
their files from the directory pmwiki/wikilib.d/ .
