  • I am having difficulties to use the tagging feature of ditto. Questions are like

    1. if tag are base on a TV, do i use just the TV name? I saw some examples where they prefix the tv name with tvTVNAME, I also saw some example using TV tag [* *] But no matter which one I use I can’t make it to output accoding to my tag.

    2. If I split my keywords with comma, does space matter? For example, is

    apple, orange, mango

    same as


    3. I would like to see a tutorial from the start to beginning, where a TV call fruit is created. And the correct way to comman separated keywords into each document (with space or no space?), and after that some complete snippet code that could retrieve the documents according to the tag (for example, all documents tag with apple only).

    • I believe it’s `tvfruit`, etc. Good questions though, and I promise you answers by the end of the month.
        No, I don't know what OpenGeek's saying half the time either.

      • is there a way to set the order of loading scripts into the head section of a page via "regScriptsAndCSS" (used in many snippets)? i. e. to define that script a has to be loaded after script c or at the top or before search or something like this.
        • Sorry for the slightly of topic post, but who supports the modx wiki? It seems to have crashed:

          A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

          from within function "". MySQL returned error "145: Table './modxcms/searchindex' is marked as crashed and should be repaired (localhost)".

              • Alaclek, this has been addressed sooooo many times... but here’s a link to my tutorial on converting an existing html/css page to a MODx template:


                Basically, just make a folder in /assets/templates/newtemplatename to hold your css files and template-specific images (such as background images for the CSS). Then copy/paste the raw HTML of the page to a new template in the Manager, adjust the link to the CSS and any images linked in the template itself. Then replace the content, not the structure, with MODx tags such as [*content*] so the content of each page will be inserted into the desired spot in the structure. Also replace menus with [[Wayfinder? &startId=`0`]] snippet calls to build dynamic menus based on the documents in the specified "startId" document/container.

                Other than using MODx tags for dynamic content, a MODx template behaves exactly like any flat HTML document.

                TVs are an extension of the basic MODx content tags ([*pagetitle*], [*longtitle*], [*description*], [*content*]). They allow you to make up values you want to attach to documents, such as classification tags, images, price and other details for a "catalog" page, or anything else you might want to have for your pages. They actually go far beyond this simplistic definition, but it’s a starting point grin

                    • My newcommer distribution /question as follows.

                      What is the reason for all the Firefox error messages on almost every page produced by modx, and, are these error messages of any significance?

                      Here is the latest one I’m just looking at:
