How to Support This Site

If you've found this site helpful and would like to contribute, there are several ways to do so. One is to buy my book — MODX: The Official Guide.

Bob's Guides is largely a labor of love. It has historically been a losing proposition for me, though the losses are small. Any amount you can donate will be immensely appreciated — it all adds up. You can see the list of previous donors here:

Ways to Support the Site That Won't Cost You a Thing

You can support this site by buying premium MODX extras from Mark Hamstra's modmore site using this link. Mark is donating 10% of all profits to MODX and the premium extras on his site are spectacular.


Yet another way you can help this site survive is through our web hosting affiliates. MODX can be installed at almost any host, but the process is often much smoother and site performance is better when you use a MODX-friendly host. If you go to any one through one of the following links and set up an account, we get a "finders fee" from the hosting service.

One guaranteed MODX-friendly hosting service is SkyToaster. The owner, Patrick Rice, is a long-time MODX expert and is very active on the MODX Forums. I have never seen a negative report from a MODX user with a site in SkyToaster and there are many who rave about the service and performance.

Bob's Guides is now hosted at A2 Hosting and I've been very happy there. The MODX Manager runs about four times faster than it did at my previous host and the site seems more responsive as well. I particularly recommend the Swift package with the Performance Plus option.

I've also had good luck, good support, and very reasonable prices when hosting web sites at bluehost and Arvixe MODX Hosting.




There are other ways to support the site but it has been suggested rather strongly by a large and powerful entity that I not mention them here, so I won't.


Let me also suggest that you give a little support to MODX, the open-source CMS that powers this site.

This site is an Amazon affiliate. If you go to Amazon through this link (or one of the other direct links at this site) and purchase something on that visit, we get a small percentage of the purchase price. PLEASE NOTE: If you go to Amazon and look at something, then come back later and purchase it, we get nothing unless you put the item in your cart on the first visit.

If you get something through Amazon using one of the links here, I'd appreciate it if you would e-mail me through this site's Contact Form and let me know the date and item price so I can make sure it's working as it should.




If you really want to be generous (maybe I saved your dog's life), buy an Amazon Kindle through this link:
