The first step is to login into the MODX Content Manager typically found at www.yourdomain.com/manager. Are logged in now? Good. Let's keep rolling.
Underneath the Resources tab on the left-hand side of the screen you will see a "tree" of your website. These are all of the pages (or resources) that are within your website.
If your website is large and has many pages there may be folders within this tree. These folders are main "pages" that then have a "sub-pages" underneath them. If you click on the triangle next to a folder it will expand showing you all of the "sub pages" that live beneath it. These pages will sometimes appear inside a secondary navigation feature on the main page so users can navigate easily and make sense of pages with related information.
Don’t panic. Your website isn’t going to blow up. Trust us. If a page is grayed out that means the pages is not listed in the main navigation of the website. If a page is grayed-out and italic, it means the page is unpublished and not available for the public to view.
That means the resource is simply a weblink. Here are two case examples of them in use:
The number listed in parentheses after a page name is the page id. The page id is used in a variety of ways, but the most common use is in creating a link from that page to another page in your website.
Yes it is. The great thing about MODX Revolution is that you can drag and relocate any of your pages within the Resource Tree. Simply click and hold the page you want to move, then drag it to its new location.
Right-clicking on any page will bring up a menu of options. Many of these you probably won't use too much, but here are the ones to note as they may be helpful in your managing of content adventures:
