About NewsPublisher

Update note: Requires MODX 2.2 or greater.

New Features -- MODX 2.3.2 compatible, drop-downs for template and parent, editing MODX tags (see docs), works better with Articles. See changelog for full list.

NewsPublisher presents a modifiable form for creating new resources and editing existing resources in the front end of a web site. The NpEditThisButton snippet is also included, which displays a button to launch NewsPublisher for the current page.

NewsPublisher responds to the MODx security permissions for a page. Users without the appropriate permissions cannot create or edit pages they are not authorized to access.

You can now have multiple edit buttons on a single page and can place edit buttons in the Tpl chunk of getResources or any other aggregator snippet.
