How does Friday work? What does it do?

Main page of Friday 101

As you enter Questions, Answers, Commands and other information, Friday stores them in a set of files in your FAQ folder.

When you click Create, Friday reads the HTML in your template files, substitutes information (ie, answers, dates, times, etc.) wherever it finds special "placeholders", and creates HTML (web page) files from the results.

Because Friday relies almost entirely on templates and generates virtually no "hard-coded" HTML of its own, you have total control over the appearance of your FAQ pages.

Since the text of your Questions and Answers is copied literally into the web pages Friday generates, any HTML tags you insert there will become part of the resulting web pages as well.
