I am new to modex and I find it a bit complicated to learn

the documentation on this site seems a bit too brief

it also seems to assume that you have at least some knowledge of modx, and even development

what is worrying is that it seems to be outdated, it seems to refer to things in modx that are not there anymore or have moved

all the books i've found as well as video tutorials are from years ago

so how do I go about learning this software, like a modx for dummies kind of thing?]]>

The book is well worth the purchase and still relevant as it discusses the more intricates of 'under the hood' workings of modx rather than specifically 'click here, click there' type of thing. It's also extremely comprehensive so you won't regret it.

I also have a few start tutorials on youtube you could check out

thank you, I will take a look smiley

Hello Michalis,

Welcome to the MODX forums.

Bob Ray wrote a great book, which although a few years old now is still relevant: https://bobsguides.com/my-modx-book.html

Bob's website is also a great source of information. Bob is very active on these forums and has helped many of us out with both beginners and advanced questions: https://bobsguides.com/

Helen Warner and others put this useful resource together: http://www.discovermodx.com/discover-modx.html

Mark Hamstra has many useful articles: https://www.markhamstra.com/modx/

Sepia River have some useful information: https://sepiariver.com/modx/modx-how-tos/

The official documentation is always being worked on, but there is still much to do: https://docs.modx.com/

The thing that has kept me using MODX is that the forums are so friendly and helpful.


thank you Andy, I will check them out and I appreciate your help

I found bobs guide, just dont know if it is worth it spending near 60$ on a book that is 8 years old and probably quite out of date]]>

hello guys!

Hello,
I believe the best way is practice only. Not only but many other MODX devs before have gone this way. Now a group of enthusiasts is preparing updated documentation and all the forces are thrown on the MODX 3 version, please be patient.

Btw the other possible way how to jump rapidly into MODX(as for me) is to help us with testing issues here: https://github.com/modxcms/revolution/issues, please let me know if it may be interesting for you.

Regards,
Anton

yes i'll help if i can]]>
