Revo improves so fast it's a great thing. I just did a new install of 2.2 and the back end looks heck of a lot different then just 2.xx]]>

We will be making improvements to Revo's user permissions and management as well as do a better job of showing how to use it. Thanks for your feedback.]]>

If it's not easy to completely redesign, maybe there can be some predefined users, who simply need to be activated? Please guys, make it simple.]]>

What I really mis on almost every project is that i have, lets say right column, that is on every webpage.

And into that column there is some info that needs to be able to be changed by the client.
Then the client/publisher has to go to chunks and then use tinymce editor to change the text or images.
Sometimes I have over 40 chunks and the client / publisher has trouble finding it, he can change all kind of other chunks, etc etc.

Isn't it possible to make a section just like chunks where u can put these with standard tinymce so clients can only go to that section / tab and not the basic chunks (for design/coding)?

Does anyone agree on this?]]>

It would be nice to allow snippets to override the main content textarea and propose its own UI instead.

<![CDATA[Re: Rethinking MODx]]> https://forums.modx.com/thread/620/rethinking-modx?page=25#dis-post-5191 Im so glad I tried Modx a couple of years ago.

My biggest struggle atm. is the User Management system, adding a new subadmin went ok, less access permissions for some users is a struggle.
I do see the flexability but still it can be made less hard to understand.

Futher things i noticed and also prolly are mentioned in previous posts;
- better tabbing for Resources
- increase speed for backend

I’m working on a CMP which can do somthing like you are searching for.
At this time its special for one table, but I think we can make that more flexible for different resource-classes.
I found a way how we can link TVs (types, default-values, options - also with bindings and so on) to table-fields on form-panel-tabs.
Also custom-input-types like my imagelist or multiitems-TVs are working.
I’m struggling still with richtext-TVs. But I’m sure I will find a way.

It’s great for managing everything BUT content. I am creatinging a real estate site in modx, but i’m looking at having to ask the client to scroll through 1000’s of properties without any method of sorting etc...not good. It will probably force me onto using wp3.0 as it has custom types and taxonomies (I don’t want to do this btw tongue ) Same goes for blogs. The only way to sort data in numbers that large is in tables. And it needs to be sortable and searchable. Access to chunks, templates, files etc is brilliant. Everything in one little sidebar. No complaints there. The other though is a gripe, and is really limiting the range of clients I can offer this amazing product too.

I know this functionality can be achieved using custom manager pages, but for a designer/front end developer like myself, the task is overwhelming. It’s not my area, so I wouldn’t even know where to start. Perhaps a working tutorial to demonstrate how to do it? The docss on manager pages are written for devs who know what their way around a mvc framework like no ones business, but for someone like me who can only use the system itself and develop some snippets and here and there, it’s not really feasible.

If there was some sort of way of administrating this action, it would be so so useful. I’ve mocked up a quick idea of what I’m talking about using a screenshot from batcher at the bottom. It’s in no way a complete idea, merely food for thought for you developers - but you’ll get the jist:
