Craft CMS Basics Part 1 - The demo site

Welcome to the first video of a new Craft CMS series! In this series we will start with the very basics of Craft CMS and slowly work our way to more advanced topics.

In this first video we start with exploring the Happy Lager demo site. In the next video we will take this online demonstration website to our local machine to really dive into the wonderful world of Craft CMS. Enjoy the ride!

Btw: this entire series is recorded live. No editing going on to make sure I can get this out as fast as possible.

MODX Quick Tip: xPDO schema viewer

This MODX quick tip is about the xPDO schema viewer I created some time ago. Using this simple tool you can among other things easily check relationships between your objects, which is a lot easier then checking them in the XML source.

Try the MODX xPDO schema viewer/visualizer at:

There's also the Samson Meteor Mic, which I totally love. I compared it to my Logitech H330 headset and the webcam mic here: http://youtu.be/vNFhlf_CwEE (video is part of another video: http://youtu.be/95bZl-fOd_8 which is part of a tutorial series I'm creating)

Can't believe nobody noticed this video starts with one episode (in a completely wrong aspect ratio) and returns with a completely different one after the 'commercial break'. Thanks for wasting my time with this crap.

CMS battle: MODX Revolution vs Craft CMS

In this CMS battle we will compare MODX Revolution and Craft CMS. MODX Revolution is the CMS I have used for quite some time now. Recently I heard a lot of good things about Craft as well. So, time to check them both out on the following 8 areas!

Round 1: Pricing / Licensing
Our first round is usually also the first thing people tend to check; what is this CMS gonna cost me? Let's find out!

Round 2: Learning the CMS
When you are new to any CMS, it helps a lot when you can find the info you're looking for easily. Let's see how that works.

Round 3: Templating
One of the first things you usually encounter when learning a new CMS, is templating. Let's check it out!

Round 4: Template fields
With templating out of the way, it's now time to see how we can add fields to use in those templates.

Round 5: Assets management
Maintaining a site, usually also means you'll have to manage at least some files. Let's see how the 2 compare in this area.

Round 6: Multi-site handling
I don't know about you, but most of my current projects involve at least a second language. One of my last projects even had 5 languages, each having 2 sites.

Round 7: Users and permissions
Your client does not get the same access level as you do of course. They should only get what they need to maintain the site, without any option to mess things up. Let's see if we can find a winner in this area.

Round 8: Adding features & Updating the CMS
It rarely happens that just the basic CMS installation is all you need. If it ever happens at all. So let's check how easy it is to add new features and how we are supposed to update our CMS.

Conclusion:
Some final words, because numbers don't tell you the full story.

MODX OnElementNotFound tutorial

If you are like most developers, then you probably use some kind of IDE like PhpStorm to write your code. And you probably also use those files as static elements inside MODX. Since MODX 2.2.14 you can do this process a lot faster.

In this video tutorial I will first explain the 'classic' way of adding static elements. After we have noticed how much time this takes it is time to show you the magic way using the OnElementNotFound system event using a little MODX plugin.
