MODX Revolution 2.3: Prepare for Release

The long awaited MODX Revolution 2.3 is planned to be released on July 1st, 2014. This release includes major improvements including a new, vastly streamlined and more modern, Manager Theme, User Group settings configurable by user group rank, and Resources and Elements can be opened in a new tab or Window.

Last Call for Features

In preparation for it's release we are instituting a feature freeze commencing on June 20, 2014. Any features not ready for integration at that time will be scheduled for 2.4 (following semantic versioning rules).

For translators, translations will be accepted until the day prior to release. We'll be sending out an email to notify all translators and answer any questions you may have.

What's New in 2.3

Here's a list of the highlights of Revolution 2.3:

  • Manager Theme Redesign
  • One Connector to Rule Them All
  • Actions Now Identified by Name (path) rather than an ID
  • User Group Settings by User Group rank with preference to Primary User Group
  • Contexts Now Have a Name Field separate from the Key
  • Define Custom Welcome Actions via Settings
  • Manage Custom HTTP Headers by Content Type
  • The Manager Gateway is now Configurable (i.e. change from index.php)
  • Open Resources and Elements in a New Tab or Window
  • Define Custom Tree Icons by Template
  • Added in/inarray Conditional Output Modifier
  • Added contains/containsnot Conditional Output Modifier
  • Element Categories are now unique by Parent + Name
  • Manager Menu split into 2 top-level Containers--- topnav & usernav

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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