Using non-bundled snippets

Now that we have learned and discovered how to use the snippets that come bundled with MODx, let us explore how to use new snippets that are available online. For this example, we will consider one snippet called DittoCal. Snippet DittoCal allows navigation of the blog based on dates.

Installing a snippet

To install a snippet, you have to perform one or more of the following three steps:

  1. Download and extract the snippet.
  2. Create a snippet by using the MODx Manager interface with the available snippet code.
  3. Copy the required files to the appropriate directory.

Downloading and extracting a snippet

MODx snippets can be downloaded from http://modxcms.com/extras/. The DittoCal snippet can be downloaded from http://modxcms.com/extras/package/?package=99 ...
