In this first part of a series of five screencasts, we are going to go through the process of porting an XHTML/CSS template into a MODx website.  I recorded these screencasts while working on an actual live project so there’s a bit of fumbling and issues that come up that I try to think and work through. I thought it would be an interesting teaching and learning experience on working with MODx templates and I hope that someone will find this series helpful and instructive.

As I mention in the screencast, I am not doing a written version of this information because it’s all pretty much the same as I covered in the MODx beginner series (see useful links below).  Bear in mind as you watch this screencast that the website we’re working on is a project in progress and so it may appear different than you see it in this screencast.

  1. Looking great Mary, I’m really looking forward to part two so we can all see how you converted this into a Modx theme. Modx is one of those systems I haven’t had much time to play around with, so I’ll be learning mainly from your tutorials.

    Also, thanks very much for the mention, that was very kind of you!

    Keep them coming Mary and thanks again!
