Revolution 2.2.6—Template Update Fix and More

Today we released MODX Revolution 2.2.6—just 8 weeks after 2.2.5 was released. This more frequent and consistent release cycle is to bring you fixes and improvements sooner and more predictably.

Changes of note in Revolution 2.2.6 include ensuring Resource values update when Template is changed and another that corrects a crash saving a Resource where its Template Variable has restricted permissions.

As always, this release also includes a few security fixes to keep your MODX sites safe. We always recommend upgrading to the latest version of Revolution.

Here are the highlights of the 2.2.6 release:

  • Corrected changing Template on Resources
  • Resolved Save crash with Template Varibles that have restricted permissions.
  • Optimized images in the Manager UI for performance boost.
  • Fixed window closing when using MODX Browser when Manager Loaded in new browser tab.
  • Removed the math Output Filter
  • Prevent new Content Types from having Binary Checked
  • Fix modX::stripTags() to close vulnerability
  • Form Customization rules now applied when changing Template
  • Changing Template no longer unsets Empty Cache for Resource
  • For more details read the complete changelog

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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.
