Because no twoMODx installations will be exactly alike from website to website, there are some important topics totouch on before proceeding through this user's manual.</p><p>MODx Look and Feel</p><p>Administrators have the capability to change the MODx graphical theme based on personal preference. TheMODx control panel demonstrated in this manual uses a theme called MODxGreenEvo, which provides acolorful interface with good contrast that is easy on the eyes. Your MODx control panel may have a differenttheme. If you don't like the theme configured for your MODx site, ask your website administrator to change it!</p><p>Access controls and permissions</p><p>MODx provides exellent user and group management. The MODx site administrator has fine-grained control overwhat a user or group can see and do from the control panel. Because you may be a MODx user not in thecapacity of an administrator, you may find yourself with limited access. Some of the help topics in this guidemay not apply to you. You may also find that some fields, tabs, or controls displayed in this manual may bemissing from your MODx control panel. These things are access controls at work. If you want moreadministrative liberty with your MODx site, talk to your website administrator.</p><p>Browser Compatibilty</p><p>In theory, you can administer your MODx site from any modern web browser. In practice, however, the MODxcontrol panel does not work consistently across all browsers. If you find that MODx is not functioning normally,throws error messages, or simply hangs, you may want to log-in to the MODx control panel from a freshinstallation of the Mozilla Firefox browser. Mozilla Firefox touts itself as "the world's best browser," and for goodreason. The MODx control panel tends to run best on it.</p></li><li><p>MODx Content Management System : Introduction to the MODx Administrative Interface</p><p>http://www.studioefx.com/modx-user-guide/users-guide/introduction-to-the-modx-administrative-interface[6/25/2010 7:09:35 PM]</p><p>Read Me First</p><p>User's GuideThe MODx administrativeinterfaceAbout ResourcesThe Resource BrowserThe File Manager</p><p>Uploading imagesNavigating, creating, deletingdirectoriesFile and directory bestpractices</p><p>Glossary</p><p>How Do ICreate a new web pageCreate a new containerCreate a new web linkUn-publish a resourceAutomatically publish on a futuredatePreview an unpublished resourceDelete a resourceHide a resource from menulistingInsert an imageLink to a PDF or Word docSearch for resources or contentsCustomize the page link text innavigation barsChange the Resource URLMove a resource ...</p><p>into a different containerabove or below a resource</p><p>Frequently Asked Questions</p><p>TroubleshootingMy page is displaying old contentMy page is not appearing on thesiteEditing pages</p><p>Can't add content at bottomof page.</p><p>Advanced TopicsChunks</p><p>Viewing, creating, editing</p><p>Snippets</p><p>MODx Content Management System 1.0.3 - QuickStart Guide</p><p>Introduction to the MODx AdministrativeInterfaceThe MODx administrative interface is the window that appears once you successfully log in.</p><p>The administrative interface can be divided into three distinct panels:</p><p>1. The Administrative and Main NavigationThis top area contains the links you will use to navigate through the various administrative tasks, such asloading site tools, site configuration, stats and logging, and so forth. It also displays basic information aboutthe currently logged in user. When you need to switch from task to task, you will navigate by way of thesecontrols.</p><p>2. The Resource BrowserSimilar to a site map, this panel displays all of the web pages, weblinks and containers (collectively,resources) that you have created for your site. It stylizes items so you can tell at a glance whether aresource is published, hidden, or deleted. You will navigate through items in the Resource Browser when youwish to edit, move, and delete resources.</p></li><li><p>MODx Content Management System : Introduction to the MODx Administrative Interface</p><p>http://www.studioefx.com/modx-user-guide/users-guide/introduction-to-the-modx-administrative-interface[6/25/2010 7:09:35 PM]</p><p>3. Content WindowThis is a multi-purpose content area. It will contain the contents of the resource in which you are currentlyediting. It will contain the contents of any selected administrative task. In general, this area is populatedwith data and controls when interacting with various parts of the administrative interface.</p></li><li><p>MODx Content Management System : About Resources</p><p>http://www.studioefx.com/modx-user-guide/users-guide/about-resources[6/25/2010 7:09:37 PM]</p><p>Read Me First</p><p>User's GuideThe MODx administrativeinterfaceAbout ResourcesThe Resource BrowserThe File Manager</p><p>Uploading imagesNavigating, creating, deletingdirectoriesFile and directory bestpractices</p><p>Glossary</p><p>How Do ICreate a new web pageCreate a new containerCreate a new web linkUn-publish a resourceAutomatically publish on a futuredatePreview an unpublished resourceDelete a resourceHide a resource from menulistingInsert an imageLink to a PDF or Word docSearch for resources or contentsCustomize the page link text innavigation barsChange the Resource URLMove a resource ...</p><p>into a different containerabove or below a resource</p><p>Frequently Asked Questions</p><p>TroubleshootingMy page is displaying old contentMy page is not appearing on thesiteEditing pages</p><p>Can't add content at bottomof page.</p><p>Advanced TopicsChunks</p><p>Viewing, creating, editing</p><p>Snippets</p><p>MODx Content Management System 1.0.3 - QuickStart Guide</p><p>About ResourcesGenerally speaking, a Resource is a MODx web page.</p><p>"Why not call a web page, a webpage? Why call it a Resource?"</p><p>Think of a web page, and you tend to think of something you navigate to in a web browser that displayscontent.</p><p>A MODx web page is different. While on the surface it does basically the same thing - providing content for avisitor to browse to - the similarity ends there.</p><p>A MODx web page, from administrative control, can not only be edited for content, it can be configured forfunctionality. For example, it can be configured as a weblink to automatically redirect the user to a differentweb page. It can be configured as a container (similar to a folder) for grouping related web pages. It can evenbe a combination of these things.</p></li><li><p>MODx Content Management System : The Resource Browser</p><p>http://www.studioefx.com/modx-user-guide/users-guide/the-resource-browser[6/25/2010 7:09:42 PM]</p><p>Read Me First</p><p>User's GuideThe MODx administrativeinterfaceAbout ResourcesThe Resource BrowserThe File Manager</p><p>Uploading imagesNavigating, creating, deletingdirectoriesFile and directory bestpractices</p><p>Glossary</p><p>How Do ICreate a new web pageCreate a new containerCreate a new web linkUn-publish a resourceAutomatically publish on a futuredatePreview an unpublished resourceDelete a resourceHide a resource from menulistingInsert an imageLink to a PDF or Word docSearch for resources or contentsCustomize the page link text innavigation barsChange the Resource URLMove a resource ...</p><p>into a different containerabove or below a resource</p><p>Frequently Asked Questions</p><p>TroubleshootingMy page is displaying old contentMy page is not appearing on thesiteEditing pages</p><p>Can't add content at bottomof page.</p><p>Advanced TopicsChunks</p><p>Viewing, creating, editing</p><p>Snippets</p><p>MODx Content Management System 1.0.3 - QuickStart Guide</p><p>The Resource Browser</p><p>The Resource Browser panel lists all of the Resources (web pages, weblinks, containers, etc.) you havecreated for your site. Resources are conveniently organized and stylized, so you can tell at-a-glance what theResource is, where it's positioned in relation to all other links, and its current status. When you need to edit,move or delete a Resource, you will select your Resource from this panel.</p><p>The Toolbar</p><p>At the top of the panel you will find the Resource Browser Toolbar.</p><p>This collection of buttons perform the following actions within the Resource Browser:</p><p> Expand Site Tree - This is a convenient way to quickly open all containers without having to click on eachcontainer's expand [+] icon.</p><p> Collapse Site Tree - Collapses all containers without having to click on each container's collapse [-] icon.</p><p> New Resource - Opens the Create Resource panel for you to begin work on a new Resource.</p><p> New Weblink - Opens the Create Resource panel, prepared with fields for configuring your new Resourceas a weblink.</p><p> Refresh Site Tree - Normally the site tree automatically refreshes on page updates, but a browser glitchmay interrupt the process. Click this button to force the site tree to refresh.</p><p> Sort the Site Tree - This button allows you to temporarily change the display arrangement of Resources -by name, id, ascending, descending, etc. Sorting is completely passive, and does not alter the actual menuarrangement in any way.</p><p>Purge Deleted Resources - Clicking this button will permanently remove items that have been flagged asdeleted (as indicated by their strikethru status).</p></li><li><p>MODx Content Management System : The Resource Browser</p><p>http://www.studioefx.com/modx-user-guide/users-guide/the-resource-browser[6/25/2010 7:09:42 PM]</p><p>The Site Root</p><p>Just beneath the toolbar is the Site Root, which is the starting point for the site's link structure.</p><p>The site root is assigned a name, which should be descriptive of the site as a whole - such as a company nameor service name. The name chosen is important, as it will appear on every page within the browser 'chrome' atthe top:</p><p>The Site Tree</p><p>The Site Tree lists all of the Resources available on the site in an orderly parent-child relationship.</p><p>The basic anatomy of an item in the Site Tree consists of three elements, from left to right:</p><p>1. A content icon. This icon represents the contents of the Resource. The icon is clickable in most browsers,which will bring up a context menu for accessing commands.</p><p>2. A Resource name. Clicking on the name will open the Resource for editing.</p><p>3. The Resource ID. Each identifier is unique.</p><p>To help distinguish between the various types of Resources (web pages, weblinks, containers,etc), items in the Site Tree have special icons and styling:</p><p>Web page - this Resource is a web page. When a visitor browses to this page, the page's content will bedisplayed.</p><p>Weblink - this Resource is a weblink. When a visitor browses to this page, it will immediately redirect to adifferent web page, as specified in the page parameters.</p><p>Container - this Resource is a container. It acts like a folder, and other Resources can be placed inside ofit. You would create sub-links by placing Resources inside containers. A Container can be empty, or it canalso display content just like a web page. To view the contents of the container, you would click on the [+]icon.</p><p>You may occassionally see a Resource with a different type of content icon. By default, a Resource isconfigured to display basic html markup as a web page. But a Resource is also capable of delivering a</p><p>variety of specialized content. You can configure a Resource to deliver a PDF document , XML code for</p><p>RSS feeds , a downloadable Excel file , and other advanced types of content.</p><p>The appearance of Resources in the Site Tree are further stylized to inform you of theResource's status:</p><p>Resource is published - this item is published and viewable online.</p><p>Resource is un-published - this item cannot be viewed online. It is only available from the administrationinterface for editing.</p><p>Resource is published, but not visible in menus - this item can be viewed online, but has beenconfigured to not be listed in any menu bars. You would find certain types of pages such as search results,"document not found", and form responses hidden from menus, since you would not want a user to directlynavigate to these pages.</p></li><li><p>MODx Content Management System : The Resource Browser</p><p>http://www.studioefx.com/modx-user-guide/users-guide/the-resource-browser[6/25/2010 7:09:42 PM]</p><p>Resource has been deleted - Deleting a resource removes it from public view, but the item will remain inthe Resource Browser marked this way. This gives you the opportunity to un-delete it should you changeyour mind.</p></li><li><p>MODx Content Management System : The File Manager</p><p>http://www.studioefx.com/modx-user-guide/users-guide/the-file-manager[6/25/2010 7:09:45 PM]</p><p>Read Me First</p><p>User's GuideThe MODx administrativeinterfaceAbout ResourcesThe Resource BrowserThe File Manager</p><p>Uploading imagesNavigating, creating, deletingdirectoriesFile and directory bestpractices</p><p>Glossary</p><p>How Do ICreate a new web pageCreate a new containerCreate a new web linkUn-publish a resourceAutomatically publish on a futuredatePreview an unpublished resourceDelete a resourceHide a resource from menulistingInsert an imageLink to a PDF or Word docSearch for resources or contentsCustomize the page link text innavigation barsChange the Resource URLMove a resource ...</p><p>into a different containerabove or below a resource</p><p>Frequently Asked Questions</p><p>TroubleshootingMy page is dis...</p></li></ul>
