Here we talked about MODx, and how it sucks. Now, let's talk about when it would be good to use it. The short answer is, practically never. Because there are many disadvantages to using MODx.
CreditHow do you use MODx?
In all fairness, and before we say anything else, we should give MODx some credit. Because some credit is due. Because their programmers work for free. Because their end product is also free. However, you get what you pay for.
For dummiesHow do you use MODx?
In my experience, you're better off, if you don't use MODx, because MODx assumes you're a dummy — a stupid person, a fool — who is ready, willing and able to waste pretty much ALL of his (or her) time and life on the never-ending manual processes associated with MODx, MODx Core Extensions, and MODx Extras.
Just a toolHow do you use MODx?
In my experience, it is better not to use MODx because MODx is just an unnecessary tool. Because you can easily create all your HTML pages without MODx. Because by the time you customize MODx, MODx Core Extensions and MODx Extras to do what you want, you can build a far better static site, without any of the security problems associated with MODx.
No HTML codeHow do you use MODx?
In my experience, if you don't know how to write HTML, it is better not to use MODx, because MODx expects YOU to write the vast majority of HTML code. However, if you know how to write HTML, you can do a far better job without MODx.

No installationHow do you use MODx?
In my experience, it's better not to use MODx. Because the only installation is a manual installation. And because you can't get a clean install, because MODx is buggy. Should you get a clean install, consider yourself lucky, because it is not the norm.
No supportHow do you use MODx?
In my experience, it's better not to use MODx, because the MODx forum is frequented by absolute beginners who can't help you. Because they're the classic case of the blind leading the blind. And in the meantime your site is down, and many weeks can go by, before you get help — if you can get help. ...More >>
