I am currently working with ModX Revolution but always keen to learn/try new things!
So, I have a few basic question - I guess what I need is 'read up on ....' type answers, as I don't know enough about SS to ask about specific components, if that makes sense...
I'm not a CMS provider or developer by any means, but run my own site, and a couple of other simple ones for family/friends. I have a smattering of PHP, OK-ish at HTML and CSS - but again, learning is fun!
1. In ModX, I can set up 'Template Variables' - for example, to display a side bar on a page, or which side bar to display
2. I can do conditional statements in the template, using Template Variables as the subject for example, to determine which elements should be output. So, if the 'Show Sidebar' TV was set to 0, the sidebar DIV would not be rendered in the template
3. I can call snippets of PHP in Modx to specific tasks - for example, return the current month as a number
4. I can call chunks of HTML in Modx to save having the same code in multiple places
Again, answers in the form of 'read up on....' would be great :)
And if there is any thing else an SS newbie should read up on, please let me know!!
