Installation Instructions

Install via Package Management

Basic Usage:

After installation, in the main menu of the Manager go to "Components" -> "ThemePackagerComponent". Specify a Name, Version and Release for your package, select the two checkboxes for "Package All..." and click the "Export Transport Package" button in the top right corner of the screen. You will be prompted to download the resulting package, which will contain all Resources, Elements, Sub-packages and contents of the assets/ folder in the current MODX site.

To install the package in another site, upload it to the {core_path}packages/ directory. Then in Package Management, click the small arrow next to the "Download Extras" button and select "Search Locally for Packages". Click "Yes" in the resulting dialog box, and your package should appear in the grid for installation, like any other MODX Extra or package.
