MODX Revolution

MODX Revolution is the newest version of MODX. It was sometimes referred to earlier as MODX Version 0.9.7, but following the release of MODX Revolution, MODX Version 0.9.6 is referred to as MODX Evolution and 0.9.7 as MODX Revolution. At present MODX Evolution includes all versions in the form 1.x.x and MODX Revolution includes all 2.x.x versions.

This section of the site is for information about MODX Revolution. It generally focuses on things that are new to Revolution, such as: object manipulation with xPDO, lexicon management, tag changes, etc.
