      I've been excited about MODX again recently. It feels like Revo development is back in full swing. Nice work guys.

          The SDK includes Ext JS debug utilities. It's mostly for those developing MODX Addons/Extras.

          I just checked the changelog and couldn't see anything about the 'Access Denied' problem when saving resources, can someone tell me if this has been fixed?

                How about more types of user extanded fields? I can't made checkboxes, options, radiobuttons etc. only fieldname=>value... I can make frontend form and save values, but administrator can't edit this fields normaly (checkboxes, options, radiobuttons) it is very inconvenient, why till modx has no normal extended fields for users?! Why them didn't make by an example TV-values? My soul in grief :(
