MODX: The Official Guide Available for Pre-Order

MODX: The Official Guide

It’s been well over a year in the works; long-time community member Bob Ray has authored the first (and most awesome) MODX book from MODX Press, our new in-house publishing company.

There have been a number of other English language books on MODX. However, none were written by a member of the MODX community and none with the depth of knowledge of MODX—and certainly not with the experience as a teacher, guide and mentor—that Bob Ray has in the MODX Forums and his own site Bob’s Guides where you can learn lots about MODX and baking bread.

MODX: The Official Guide is a 772 page reference and how-to manual for both MODX Revolution and Evolution. The goal of the book is to provide all the information you need to use the basic building blocks of MODX to meet your needs as a web designer/developer. Although the book focuses on MODX Revolution, many of the concepts explained apply to MODX Evolution as well, therefore, at the end of each chapter you’ll find notes for MODX Evolution.

This book stands alone in its comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of MODX. Whether you’re a site builder, designer or down-and-dirty developer, this book is a must-have.

Shaun McCormick, MODX Lead Developer
