Some slight enhancements :

  • you no more can delete an aside used within a resource (you will get a message with resource IDs using it), preventing some errors
  • added a function to "clear" an aside from any resource
  • added [[+id]] placeholder within the wrapper chunk (for a better css styling/targeting)

Installation Instructions

  • Install via package manager.
  • Setup the asides.categoryId system setting to fit your needs (indicates the category ID where your chunks to be used as asides will be stored).
  • set aside TV input option value at @EVAL return $modx->runSnippet('getAside');
  • allow aside TV to access your desired templates
  • in those templates, set [[showAside? &chunks=`[[*aside]]`]]
  • you now should be good to go!
  • Note: setting "Lock chunk for editing" as activated prevents the chunk edition from the grid

    • Added an option to remove an aside from any resource without deleting the aside (chunk)
    • Ensure an aside isn't in use before deletion
    • Added id placeholder for the wrapper, to allow a better css styling/targeting.
