In the last couple of days the MODX team released the latest version of the MODx Revolution CMS, 2.1.0-pl.  This new version comes with support for more databases, and improved performance among other enhancements.  I highly recommend that you upgrade your existing Revolution sites to this new stable release.  If you're following the MODx beginner series here on the Coding Pad, go ahead and upgrade your install as I will also be upgrading the learnmodxrevolution.maryspad.com site that we're building to 2.1.0 before the next tutorial installment, so we'll all be on the same page for the rest of the series. I have posted a video tutorial on how to upgrade a Revolution site at http://modxvideotutorials.com/modx-revolution-upgrading-your-site .  The steps that I have outlined in that screencast are:

I've been working on a new project recently - MODx Video Tutorials is a blog dedicated purely to MODx screencasts and video tuts. Background: After posting numerous written tutorials here on the coding pad blog I have found that sharing knowledge is something I enjoy doing. When I ventured into creating screencasts, I found that after getting past my voice shyness, I really enjoyed doing those as well. After a lot of thought I have decided to create a separate blog purely for MODx screencasts, and keep this blog for written tutorials and possibly screencasts on other topics.

getResources0Welcome to part 10 of the MODx Revolution for Complete Beginners series.  In this installment we’re going to begin exploring how to create a page that aggregates content from several different pages, such as you would find in a magazine style website, or a blog, or a news website, etc.  We will continue working on the resource site for learning MODx Revolution that we've been building through this series.  We’re using the 7 in 1 Business Success Site Template from Themeforest, although you can follow along with any template that you choose.   In this installment, we're going to work with the getResources snippet to start bringing together a "news" page on our site, and we will present it using the blog template page from our theme.   So let's get started :)

formit00-1Welcome to part 9 of the MODx Revolution for Complete Beginners series.  In this installment we're going to look at how to create a simple contact form on our website using the FormIt snippet.  As we work through this series of tutorials we’re building a resource site for learning MODx Revolution.  We’re using the 7 in 1 Business Success Site Template from Themeforest, although you can follow along with any template that you choose.    At the end of the last installment I encouraged you to apply what we've learned so far and port in the inner pages for your template.  We're going to start with the HTML code for the contact page that comes with the template we're using, and transform that into a dynamic contact form using the FomIt snippet.
