Holy MODX Cloud, Batman!

"Holy MODX Cloud, Batman!"

This is the title of a post in the MODX Forums from user eladnova, aka Peter Knight. He explains how he came to realize the power of MODX Cloud. He, like other MODX Cloud users have only tentatively dipped their toes in the water to see what MODX Cloud really does. Here's an excerpt of what he experienced today:

But this morning my biggest client called me about a big website overhaul they have in the pipeline and the number 1 stipulation was that ...

“I need to give the Board of Directors, Management team and Staff' a preview URL before we go live. I don't care how it's done, where it sits or how we access it but we need to see an exact copy of the our site with the new changes in place before we go live.”

So I downloaded the Vapor tool, ran it on the live site and injected it into my MODX cloud account within about 30 mins.

My jaw literally dropped when I logged into this MODX Cloud snapshot and saw an exact working and functioning version of the site before me. I now have a mirror image version of my clients site which I can roll out changes to and then hand back for review.

We're so grateful to hear experiences like this about MODX Cloud and we'd love for you to share yours. If you're currently using MODX Cloud, please share your experiences in the comments below or feel free to respond to Peter's post in the Forums. If you're not yet using MODX Cloud, the Beta is still open (for a little while longer) so sign-up today.

Hi. We’re MODX.

We’re here to help you fix, build and grow fantastic sites. How can we help?

MODX Diagnostics

MODX’s Open Source software is 100% free for anyone to download and use. As the team behind it for more than a decade, we know it inside, out, and then some.

Like any software, sometimes things break; we can usually fix them very fast. But, we do have to charge for our time to support our families and fund its ongoing development. There are almost an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more. We will save you a lot of time and frustration, and get you back in action.

With our MODX Diagnostic service, we determine the source of issues, and often fix them on the spot. For more extensive problems needing more time, like hacked sites or overdue upgrades, we provide additional estimates and guidance. MODX Diagnostics cost $99 for standard business hours support (US Central Time), or $500 for priority, rush or after-hours emergencies.

If you don’t have budget for professional support from the source, you look for answers in the MODX Forums or Documentation, or seek help from MODXers in the Community Slack, or from MODX Professionals near you.

  I’m not ready to pay, let’s talk…
