Editing Velocity Files

I need to set up a Confluence site without child pages showing. I understand this is done via the Velocity files. Does anyone know how to edit velocity files?

notepad? :) Veolcity templates are text, syntax available at http://velocity.apache.org/engine/devel/user-guide.html , Im not clear on the exact files you need to modify, but an alternate approach may be to use a theme engine, eg Adaptavists ThemeBuilder https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/com.adaptavist.confluence.themes.sitebuilder or Zen Foundation https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugins/com.zenfoundation. YMMV

Log in as an administrator and select Browse -> Confluence Admin -> Look and Feel -> Custom HTML and insert the following code in the "At end of HEAD" section:

AJS.toInit(function() {
