Pros: The advantage of the system is that anyone can work with it, because it will not even have to be understood. The admin panel is convenient and intuitive. There is a quality SEO module that allows you to customize the pages.

Cons: Ready-made templates are few, so in many situations you will need investments in the work of designers and programmers. And also it should be noted that MODX has a small amount of useful materials in the network relative to its competitors.

Pros: Excellent CMS for companies that provide services. As the online store MODX has not seen, so I can not say anything. ModX is very handy, although it's not possible to quickly install a template that has been downloaded from the Internet. MODX is more suitable for those who have at least a minimal knowledge of HTML, CSS, preferably PHP.

Cons: Despite the fact that there is not much information on the Internet for installing and configuring the system, I was able to independently understand and even make a self-updating sitemap.xml.

Pros: If you, like I once, just start your small business, based on the provision of some services, it is worth paying attention to this engine. It provides the widest choice of possibilities for this. Starting from thematic templates and ending with search engine optimization.

Cons: System is originally sharpened just under the scope of services. Do on this engine a multi-page information project can only be solved by a masochist. There are simpler and more functional solutions for this.

Pros: I recommend this system to all entrepreneurs who have focused their business in the provision of services. For such purposes, the system has many suitable templates and has a wide toolkit, which is sharpened precisely for commerce.

Cons: This system can be recommended only for business. Under a multi-page it will not work. I would like more templates freely available.

Pros: Our company is engaged in providing services. Clients are found through the Internet. Therefore, the issue of choosing a CMS was not. Uniquely stopped at MODX and not lost. It just suited us perfectly. To place information conveniently, the system was originally commercially grounded and has a friendly interface.

Cons: This CMS is concentrated only on the commercial segment. Make some information project will be difficult.

Pros: The MODX admin is designed to create templates right in it. There are many free snippets that expand the functionality of the system. Having set the desired snippet, with the help of HTML code and so-called placeholders you can create your own template for each menu on the site (even for a separate menu item, active and inactive!).

Cons: Despite all the advantages, free extensions for MODx exist much less than for other popular CMS. And those that exist are saturated with certain bugs.

Pros: Free engine, great for creating websites services. The work is quite simple, thanks to chunks allows you to easily and quickly change the site templates. Clear visual editor. Friendly with SEO.

Cons: The system is not quite suitable for working with online stores (there is no suitable functionality); To work with a large site with a complex structure will be extremely inconvenient.

Thanks to the developers for the functional solution

Pros: The MODx admin panel is made in such a way that the block with the structure of the site pages can be seen almost from any of its sections - it is on the left. Thus, for example, you can easily see the id of the material when it is needed.

Cons: In many modules of the system there are errors and the most sad is that to find another, correct extension with similar functionality is unlikely to work, you will either have to put up with bugs, or learn programming and fix them.

I recommend this CMS!

Pros: In addition to the site pages, the admin panel also has a file structure - all files on the server can be edited directly from it. This is very convenient, especially if you install the code highlighting plugin.

Cons: Despite its convenience, the administrative panel MODx differs by slow work. This is especially noticeable in the fact that very often folders open slowly, it is felt that there are many complex processes in which the system itself is confused.

Pros: When installing MODx Revolution (Advanced package), you can rename the entire folder structure, even access to the administrative panel, and as a result, it is much more difficult for a potential cracker to determine what kind of system it is. Also in the administrative panel itself there are many security settings.

Cons: The admin panel in MODX is not flexible at all. Yes, it is quite convenient, but it is not very easy to work with it.

Pros: If you intend to make a not very complex site for yourself or a customer, MODX will do the best for it. This system has a simple design and functionality, which will help not to complicate the task to yourself and the customer.

Cons: In order to understand how to call snippets and create templates with the help of chunks, the average user will need a lot of time and effort.

Pros: MODx is very suitable for sites that are planned to be seriously promoted in the search engines. It is also good to do websites where there are many non-standard design elements, for which it is difficult to find ready-made module templates in other CMS.

Cons: Not everyone who has a site likes to dig through codes by default, even if they are easier than code written in some programming language. Not everyone will be happy every time to call to change the settings to developers (especially if they charge him for these changes). I think most people do not like and do not rejoice. And these moments, too, must be taken into account when making a website for someone.

Pros: I've been building websites for a long time, I've tried many control systems (Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal) and I always realized that it's not very convenient for me to work with them, they are basically created either to quickly make a simple site, or they are complex and uncomfortable. In general, I stopped on MODX and now basically work on it, I can say that it is very convenient for me.

Cons: Minus only one: a simple user without knowledge of programming (at least the basics) will not be able to create a site on this system.

Excellent CMS, I recommend!

Pros: This is a flexible and convenient control system. At first many of our sites were on other CMS, they slowed down a bit, some changes on the site were accompanied by problems. Once we moved these sites to MODX, everything became easy and simple.

Cons: Without shortcomings Modx also does not do. They are not so critical, but they make you think about it before installing this CMS on the server. The main disadvantage is a small number of ready-made templates.

A good CMS, it's strange that so few sites work under its management

Pros: To the advantages of CMS MODX, I can safely attribute a simple and intuitive interface, a well thought-out SEO module (optimization is now very important), as well as low hosting requirements.

Cons: The tags have their own syntax, which in the beginning of working with the control system seems complicated. In practice, it becomes clear that this approach allows you to leave the template code clean and understandable, unlike other Open Source CMS.

Super control of your code and templates. Allot of functionallity built in the system.

Pros: Total control of the templates. Easy to get functionality without hundreds of extras. But there is also allot of good extras to get extended functionality if you need it. The overall strength is the templateing system, where you have total controll over all of your code.

Cons: You have to know php to get advanced functions. And the API is a little hard to get into if you don't know PHP.

Overall: Total control.
