Welcome to part 3 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 As we work through these tutorials, we're building a MODx resource site called Learn MODx.  So far our website looks like this:  (you can click on the images to see a larger view) tut2modxcms14 If you recall, we didn't install the sample website but instead opted for a minimal install, which I feel is cleaner and easier to work with.  As I clarified in my addendum to the post on Installing MODx, Shane's comment about the value of installing the sample website as a demo to see how MODx does things is an excellent idea.  If you didn't read the addendum to that post and the comments please do so. In today's post, we're going to start looking at templating MODx.  We're going to begin implementing a new template to our site to give it a unique look and in the process we'll learn about some of MODx's template tags.

Today I'm going to start on a new series of tutorials that will teach you how to build a website using MODx CMS.  As always, I invite you to add comments and share your knowledge as we learn and build together.  I also encourage you, as you follow these tutorials, to work along with me, installing a local copy of MODx on your computer so that you can follow along and see MODx in action. tut1modxcms1 What is MODx?
