I think there needs to be more How-To instructions with snippets, some are quite vague
the exact way to write out the tag to call it, what the snippet is suppose to do, how it does it and any other important info to get it working
or perhaps a balance between Modx documentation and the snippet instructions themselves but since the Snippet is what we are using its best to outline it there especially for the newbies
Again, this will all come in due time and newbie-level documentation is on our future to do list. For now, we need to focus resources on development.

We’ve started modXhost.com - a simple talk and pictorialized tutorial on building a site from the ground up using modxcms. Snippets will be covered
I thought about doing something like that as well and checked out your site, you are taking so long can you speed it up a little ? he he just kidding
I manged to get some things working through trial and error
just updated my sig and avatar personal text "it says it all" now all we need is the MODX BIBLE and hold CMS mass every sunday
An illustrative tutorial about the creation of http://www.modxhost.com/ using modX from scratch.
Great work! Maybe we should put something like this in the documentation section Susan?
There are several sites being developed that contain tutorials and blog entries and articles on installing and using MODx. There is no way the Documentation can emulate or incorporate all of them, and there will be many more as time passes.
I also don’t want to get involved in any kind of "approved tutorial site" issues. Perhaps the best idea would be to have a topic in the forums, similar to the Site Showcase topic, where people can publish their MODx tutorial and blog sites, with a "sticky" post at the top explaining that these are private, individual sites and not official MODx sponsored sites; i.e. use at your own risk. But Zi or one of the other forum moderators would best know if this is a good idea, and how to implement it.
