MODX Documentation

Contributors Contributors Slack Chat

This repository contains the MODX documentation in Markdown format. This is part of an effort to replace the official documentation with a markdown-system that allows easier management and more community involvement.

This new documentation is currently available from

New documentation goals

The new documentation (content) should allow:

  • Major Version-specific documentation, based on git branches. MODX 3 will need to have its own documentation branch that can be worked on independently from MODX 2, with the possibility for git merges to synchronise shared changes.
  • Multilingual capabilities. All current documentation is in a /en/ folder, which should allow other languages to be added.

Serving up the documentation

The beauty of markdown is that it is independent from specific technologies or tools. This repository therefore only has the markdown content. How this content is served up to users, is handled in a different repository.


Please feel free to open an issue for bad markdown conversions or discussion points. There is also a relevant #documentation channel on the MODX Community Slack.
