Built with MODx
This web site is being built using MODx (web site at http://www.modxcms.com/), which acts as a content management system (CMS) and also as an applications framework. As I learn new MODx-related techniques, I will document some of them here.
- Non-link Menu Entry to Current Page. MODx has a module
(or rather, a “snippet”) called
“Wayfinder”, that automatically generates
navigation menus. By default, every item in the menu is a link,
even if it refers to the current page. To make it generate menus
in which the item for the current page is not a link, I followed
- MODx Login Link
on every page. How to have a ‘Login’
link on every page of a web site hosted using MODx.
To test the working of the Login link on any page
of this web site, you may log in as
‘joe’ with password ‘joejoe’.
- <fixedpre> Tag: An Enhanced <pre> Tag.
This tag lets you automatically quote special characters
in a portion of text. It will, for example,
let you discuss MODx snippets in your web
pages (e.g.: [!Wayfinder!],
[[Breadcrumbs]]) without accidentally
triggering the execution of those snippets.
