  • Hello everyone,

    It has been awhile since I've had to tweak my ModX trying to remember all the settings or what I needed to do, so any help would be great. I have some separate sub pages that I created years ago that are just basic HTML and haven't gotten around to making templates or anything in ModX. Anyway as I have the html files upload when you click on the links or go to those sites it just takes me to the front page of my site instead of to the actual html page.

    Is there a setting or links etc. in ModX to stop it from taking over my other pages?

    Below is the main page with the 3 sites that should be showing up:
    http://www.tapanime.com/info/seriesinfo.php

        Thanks for the reply, yes they are had done in super basic HTML from the mid 90s the links on my reference page are in the basic a herf call, and the links are correct, but they wouldn't be published because they are not made within ModX to be published. I'm not sure how they would be protected since they were just updated and there. Any other thoughts?
        • Can you paste one of the links that's not working here?

                No, each time I click on the link posted above it takes me to my homepage both in chrome, edge and firefox.
