An Introduction to Modx

Introduction to Modx


You may have heard of Joomla! or Drupal or any other number of CMS's, but they all have the same, uneditable, uniform feel to them. There is no way to break free of the bonds that tie you down to the system. This is not true with a relatively new addition to the CMS scene, Modx. Modx is powerful and fast, while still being 100% customizable in every way. It does not matter what you want to do in Modx, if it can be done in PHP, it can be done in this powerhouse of a framework.

What is Modx?


Modx is several things. It is a customizable web application builder, a website builder, a content management system (CMS) and much more. Basically, it is a powerful tool for creating almost anything you want in an easy to use graphical user interface (GUI).
