Is there is a way to link to templates from outside of the modx admin panel. Maybe linking with something like an includes statement. The inability to use tabs in the modx admin interface really slows down my productivity as far as developing inside modx. Copying and pasting from an editor every time I make a change is tedious also.
If you want to use an external html file as a template you can create a snippet with the necessary include statement, and then put the snippet call in a MODX template.
I haven’t been using MODx for too long, so there may another way.
MODxFS lets Unix users with FUSE mount MODx databases as filesystems. This means you can directly edit Chunks, Pages, Snippets, and Templates with your preferred HTML/PHP editor.
Unfortunately the link is dead and I don’t think I could install on my shared hosting server.
