Is it posible to use template files instead of making templates in resources-templates?
it will be a lot easier to edit.
ive tried to include a snippet that includes my template and that works but is there a way to do it without snippets?
or any other tips
AFAIK, I think snippets are the only way to include php scripts.
This looks great. A question: Do you then have an auto-transfer of your html-template-file? Or how do you do this? To make this efficient, i mean?
I think, thererfor I am! But what I am, and why...?
Well, my workflow is this:
1) Edit HTML in Dreamweaver on my local machine.
2) Upload the HTML file(s) within Dreamweaver’s FTP function to the live site.
I imagine a lot of web developers/designers work this way, so that’s why editing the HTML within MODx’s template page is such a pain. Even if you don’t have Dreamweaver, it’s just as easy to drag-n-drop the files over to the live site through any FTP client.
Another way I work is actually even easier for me. I’m on a Mac and I use YummyFTP. With that FTP client, I can find the file on the live site that I want to edit, then click on the editor button and it downloads the file to my editor of choice (TextMate), I make my edits and when I hit save, YummyFTP automatically uploads the saved file back to my live site. I do this when I’m making small changes since I don’t use TextMate fulltime (yet).
So you can see there’s lots of options for you to make this as efficient as possible.
For anyone interested in other Mac software options...
Most of the major Mac FTP clients integrate with BBEdit using the same kind of direct integration as you mentioned with YummyFTP and TextMate.
This system works very efficiently for me.
