Now Open—MODX Club Moscow

Most people probably don’t know that Moscow is one of the top traffic drivers to MODX. When Nikolay Lanets, one of our MODX Ambassadors from Russia, approached me about starting a MODX Club in Moscow’s YoStudio anti-cafe specifically to help anyone at any level with MODX … let’s just say I was more than intrigued.

Enter the Anti-Cafe

When Nikolay mentioned "anti-cafe", my first thought was a co-working space. While that's an apt description, anti-cafes bring a new twist on the subject by charging by the minute, and for very reasonable rates at that—wifi, projectors, work desks, meeting spaces, games, great coffee and good snacks all included.

Nick's idea was that Moscow needed a central place to get help with MODX, and to have it open every week. Yes, every week. When we started floating out the ideas for Ambassadors—more on that next week—weekly was not exactly the frequency I thought would pop up first. Actually, weekly never even crossed my mind!

Starting Monday, January 28th, MODX Club Moscow opens at YoStudio. Whether you're an end user with a question about how to use MODX, a hard core developer wanting to dig deep into xPDO, a newcomer looking to learn about MODX, or a site builder working with MODX Add-ons, you'll find a welcome spot to learn about MODX.

I'd like to personally thank Nick for putting this together and encourage Moscow MODXers to stop by. Get the full details at

Hi. We’re MODX.

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

Tell us the general reason for reaching out so we can connect you with the right team.

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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