Velocity is a template engine that is used to insert dynamic
content to HTML pages. In Freebok Velocity can be used to create the layout for
guestbooks and forums. To be more specific, the layout is normal HTML code and
Velocity is used to insert the guestbook and forum messages and other dynamic
content to the otherwise static HTML pages.
The Velocity guide that you find from Freebok's pages is a somewhat
truncated version of the original Velocity User's Guide. Sections not relevant
to Freebok have been removed. You can read the official User's Guide or the
translated versions from the Velocity site, but be aware that there may be some
inconsistencies with them and Freebok's version since Freebok does not always
use the latest, official version of Velocity.
