What is MODx?

MODx helps you take control of your online content. An Open Source Content Management Framework, it frees you to build sites exactly how you want and make them 100% yours. Zero restrictions and fast to build. Super-simple templates in HTML/CSS/JS (any lib you want). Registered user systems and a killer community. Welcome to web-building nirvana.

Why use MODx?

End-users can't believe how simple MODx makes managing sites. For developers it's a toss up between loving how fast it makes building sites that match custom designs exactly and the peace of mind that comes with confidently being able to turn over sites to clients for day-to-day maintenance. Years of work by a team of full time developers along with an amazing community of volunteers means MODx is a safe choice and here to stay.

How does it wok?

MODx is perfect both for regular marketing websites and for many custom web applications. If you're looking for a robust, Ajax- and SEO-friendly CMS built on top of a modern OOP database framework—and you want it free of licensing fees or restrictions—MODx is probably right for you.

MODx allows for full segregation of content (plain HTML), appearance and behavior (standards compliant CSS and Javascript) and logic (PHP, snippets). Additional MODx features include:

  • Graphical web-based installer
  • Supports PHP 4.3.11 and above
  • Supports WYSIWYG rich text editors
  • Its Manager application works cross-browser and cross-platform including Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer on Windows, Firefox and Safari in Mac OS X, and Firefox in Linux
  • Can be installed under IIS, Apache, Lighttpd and Zeus web servers
  • Can be deployed "to the cloud" via Amazon EC2
  • Works well even on modest shared servers
  • Supports any Ajax library including jQuery, MooTools, ExtJS and Prototype
  • Recursive parser for nested functionality
  • Complete control of all metadata and URL structure for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) purposes
  • Object-oriented core code
  • Model-view-controller compliant
  • Role-based permissions for the Manager
  • Ability to customize the Manager on a per-deployment basis

MODxTemplates is currently reporting several exploited links for me so you may want to remove that site for now and/or let the owner know. (Well AVG is reporting that)
