Guiding the Future of MODX and an Overdue Refresh

The MAB

The MODX Advisory Board—the “MAB”—is the most important thing for the MODX Community since its inception. It serves as a trusted body to help direct and plan the future of MODX, covering topics ranging from governance, to the software roadmap, to promotions and events.

The MAB has been quietly working for months to lay a foundation and to organize initial plans and proposals. The MAB operates transparently, sharing recommendations and other important information on the MODX website and other public channels like Google Drive folders, Github and Trello. The MAB has already finalized a charter, created policies, and is working on more than a dozen recommendations. If you’re interested in MODX’s future plans and direction, check out the MAB section on the new MODX website: https://modx.com/community/modx-advisory-board/mab-charter

Speaking of a New MODX.com…

We’re happy to announce a new website for MODX. We wanted to accomplish some key things with the new site:

  • Resolve the longstanding lack of a mobile/responsive design, with a solid foundation for introducing new technologies like Google AMP, and
  • A CMS section that better exposes the benefits of MODX Revolution, with topics applicable to Site Builders/Owners, Business-to-Business users and the Enterprise. While this section will grow in the coming weeks and months, its current articles help users find information relevant to helping them learn about and evaluate MODX software, and
  • A Cloud section to help people understand when MODX Cloud makes sense. Key to this is elaborating how it differs from traditional commodity web hosts, with a fully-managed and maintained software and platform stack that make maintaining sites and performing content staging workflow a breeze—even for non-technical users, and
  • Better organization and editing of other sections like Services, Community and Learning. Have more flexibility to add new sections as needed, and
  • Make it super-fast and easy for MODX site owners who’ve lost contact with their developers or that need emergency, on-demand support to be able to do so, fast.

We still have a lot of work remaining on the site, but we’ve put a nice dent into the work.

Thank You

I’d like to thank all the MAB members and the team at MODX. They’ve put in a lot of time and hard work in preparation for ushering in the next amazing phase of MODX.

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…
