Evolution CMS Has a New Home

In 2004, what ultimately became Evolution CMS was born—“Evo” for short. Since then, there have been millions of downloads powering hundreds of thousands of sites across the web.

In 2016, MODX turned over Evo to its current leadership team to focus on MODX Revolution CMS. Since the current Evo team has been solely responsible for its development and releases for the last few years, it is only fair to give them the autonomy and recognition they deserve.

Today we’re formally recognizing this transition and handing over the keys to Evolution CMS.

Evolution CMS has an established community, long history and will be managed as an independent project going forward. Other than removing “MODX” from its name, there is nothing different from the Evo of the last few years. From today forward, all future Evo information and announcements can be found on its new website at

The existing Evo support forums on will stay online, as we navigate the process of finding a new home for all the MODX forums as a whole; ditto for the Evo Extras.

We hope this transition to a team devoted to the success of Evolution CMS ensures its longevity and is welcome news to Evo users everywhere.


Hi. We’re MODX.

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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