I accidentally created a page that was at a sub-level of the first page, turning the first page into a folder. I can’t figure out how to undo my mistake.This is an easy mistake to make, and sometime you may just need to change which docs are in which container and such. Fortunately, it's actually pretty easy to correct and there are a couple of ways to do it, let me walk you through them. (Remember you can click on all the screenshots to see a larger view) To start off, here is a screenshot of my document tree. I have created a document named Home, and within it is a document titled About Us.
Welcome to part 8 of our series of tutorials on building a website with MODx CMS. So far we've looked at: Part 1: Introduction to MODx Part 2: Installing MODx Part 3: Working with Templates Part 4: Introducing Chunks Part 5: Introducing Snippets Part 6: Introducing Template Variables Part 7: Introducing Ditto As we work through these tutorials, we're building a MODx resource site called Learn MODx. In the last installation we introduced Ditto and continued working on the Library section of our resource website. In today's installation we're going to continue working some more with Ditto, and learn how to template our output so that our Library page has the look we want. In the learn we will learn a little more about Ditto, its parameters, and its placeholders.
The MODx Blog contest is now winding down. We have already received some submissions, and we're counting down... less than two weeks to the end. If you haven't submitted your entry, please make sure to do so before the morning of Friday May 8th. I will close the comments section to the contest post shortly after that so that we…
Welcome to part 7 of our series of tutorials on building a website with MODx CMS. So far we've looked at: Part 1: Introduction to MODx Part 2: Installing MODx Part 3: Working with Templates Part 4: Introducing Chunks Part 5: Introducing Snippets Part 6: Introducing Template Variables As we work through these tutorials, we're building a MODx resource site called Learn MODx. In the last segment we introduced template variables and started to add a new section (Library) to our resource website. We created a new template to hold information about books, and created a container to hold all the pages about books. Recall that in MODx a container is simply a page that acts as a parent to other pages (children). So far our website looks pretty much the same as it did before: (you can click on the images to see a larger view) In today's tutorial, we're going to continue working on our Library section. We're going to publish the individual pages for the different books, and then make them accessible to our website visitors by creating a page that aggregates all our book pages using the Ditto snippet, and then make that page accessible to our visitors. So let's get started:
This post was inspired by a conversation on Twitter, where @ShaneSponagle, my buddy and MODx guru extraordinaire :) asked me what my blog stats looked like with respect to interest in MODx vs. Drupal, since I blog about both platforms. What I'm going to present here is a simple, and yet not so simple answer to that question. Some disclaimers before I start:
- I'm not an expert on either platform, I just share what I know and I'm learning
- I'm not an expert at statistics or interpreting them
- I'm not making any statements about which CMS is "better" or "more popular" than the other
- In the grand scheme of things, I'm a small fish and this blog is just a small portion of the web, and so I don't pretend to represent any global trends
- I am working concurrently on two tutorial sets, one for Drupal and one for MODx
- They are both aimed at complete newbies, so the audience is comparable
- A lot of my top hits and searched are on posts in either tutorial series, with the exception of two other posts (one on Fedora and the other on splitting CSV files).
