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.]]>

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?

Thanks Mark! A humble contribution at the moment, another 2 weeks it’ll be more interesting we only have an hour or so a day to throw in but at least it’s something - our designers making a new skin for it at the moment, I’m looking forward to writing that part of the tutorial and doing the make-over . . . then making all the instruments on the dash board light up - or so to speak smiley]]>

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 smiley


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 grin I manged to get some things working through trial and error


*lol*

yeah, we have client’s to look after but trying to put about an hour a day into it (because I made a promise to contribute this after complaining about the vague tutorials here and then getting a better idea of how busy these people are developing this great system)

It’s definately for the inquisitive minded types and trial and error can be a bit of a fun adventure depending on how you look at it smiley

For sure if you’ve got the time then the world can’t have enough beginners guides to modx smiley

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
