Everything you give goes straight to
the Open Source Project.

100% of your donation goes to people working directly on the MODX Open Source software project, along with the systems that keep it online. Helping put food on the table and servers serving downloads is a great way to earn karma points and help create a bright future for MODX.

Dear MODXer,

It’s hard to believe a decade has passed since we started work on what became MODX. What began as a way to solve the problem of needing a platform without restrictions for client websites, turned into a global movement. Our mission to bring “Creative Freedom” to anyone that truly cares about exceptional user experiences and no-compromise web design clearly resonates, but we need your help.

Over the years the cost to maintain the Open Source project have grown a ton. On average, we invest over $12,000 each month in salaries for the Open Source activities and coding, infrastructure to keep the OS project in the wild, and events—we recoup less than half of that in donations, sponsorships and advertising.

With your help we can do so much more! Whether you can only afford a small one-time donation, or you’re prepared to give 5% of every MODX project, everything is truly appreciated and counts. We’ll use 100% of everything you give towards activities that directly impact the Open Source Community, like paying for servers, improving Community services, a portion of the salaries for the staff that work on and release code, and for attending events like the MODX Weekend or putting on MODXpos. And yes, the occasional beer, too.

Thanks in advance for your help, and thanks for choosing MODX!

Hi. We’re MODX.

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

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an unlimited variety of things that can cause problems, including server upgrades, corrupt files, accidental changes, outdated software, database hiccups and more.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