MODx NewsListing

I mentioned the other day that I was looking at different content management systems for the Fordham Church website. I’ve decided to stick with MODx because I already know it, and it would take ages to migrate everything over to another system!

I’ve used the NewsListing snippet to generate a News page, and I’ve created an RSS feed using NewsFeed. I did find a couple of bugs in the NewsListing snippet, which I’ve now fixed (although I’m not sure whether I was using the latest version. And the NewsListing snippet has now been deprecated in favour of Ditto!)

Anyway, the website now has a nice working ‘News’ page with accompanying RSS feed, so I’m happy 🙂

In other news: if you’re a web developer, “You’re Probably Storing Passwords Incorrectly” is an absolute must. Security is becoming such a big issue these days, I think it’s vital that all developers who may have to store passwords on a web server do read it.
