How to Start Posting with MODX Mini-Blogs

Setting up a mini-blog is relatively simple. Here's what you need to do to get started with making new posts:

  1. Login to the MODX Control Panel.
  2. Press the plus-sign next to the Blog(2) container resource to see the blog entries posted there.
  3. To make a new Blog entry, simply right-click the Blog container document and choose the "Create Resource here" menu option. To edit an existing blog article, right click the entry and choose the "Edit Resource" menu option.
  4. Write or edit the content and press save, making sure the document is published.
  5. Everything else is automatic; you're done!

When you are logged in your own posts have a special color so you can easily spot them from the comment view.

The form also does not display any guest fields when logged in.

Notice that I can't abuse <b>html</b>, , or [+placeholder+] tags.

A new line also doesn't come unnoticed.
