  • I was looking to implement an external events calendar into an existing MIGXdb that is currently fully functional with its own CMP.

    Then it dawned on me that I had over looked MIGX Calendar, however I read this line on it's MODX extras page:

    "Its currently not meant to be used in production"

    from this page:

    https://modx.com/extras/package/migxcalendars

    This made me cautious so I not try to install yet.

    However, I know how fantastic MIGXdb is so it got me thinking that if it can work it would be a great fit with an existing MIGXdb

    So I have a couple of questions:

    1. Is MIGXCalendar still compatible with the latest version of MIGX?

    If yes....

    2. Can I just use MIGXCalendar for front end displaying data from an existing MIGXdb?

    My use case would be as follows:


    • Load data into existing MIGXdb CMP
    • Feed data into MIGXCalendar from existing data base (use MIGXLoopCollection)

    I'd be really interested to know if I can use MIGXCalendar as I have set out above

    I'm not really interested in the front end editing functions of MIGXCalendar, I just want to display start date and end date ranges on a number of events that range from 1 day up to 2 or 3 weeks that have been read from the data base
