The 3 Components of VELO
VELO is less a product and more a branding concept that includes 3 components:
Backend databases allow the website to be easily maintained while providing the basis for advanced web funtionality. When combined either with repeaters or CORVID coding, the backend databases allow for complex parsing of nearly any data element served up on any Wix page or fold. Recently Wix added the ability to integrate with outside databases as well.
Dynamic Pages allow the website to remain "thin" by creating a template that can serve up different data from the Wix databases (collections). With the use of dynamic pages, redundant designs can be created to display alternative data within any data element. This function can significantly reduce the number of pages that comprise a website and therefor seed up load times.
