BASIS OF WORK WITH MODX (part 2)
Almost every page (template) has a field for writing the necessary text.
It can be pasted, copied, edited and deleted. To do this, intuitive icons are placed above the text.
Let’s look at the most popular actions:
Highlight text in bold. To do this, select the desired content and press the B button.
Place the text in the center. Select the text and press the button similar to the one in Microsoft Word – with drawn text in the middle.
Insert pictures into text. Click on the button with the picture in the menu, load the photo from the computer (by clicking on the “Address” item) or take the one already on the server and insert it. If the parameters of the inserted image do not suit you, then you can always change them. To do this, select the picture, click on the button with the picture in the menu and change the width or height (important point: by default there are settings that preserve the proportions of the picture. So, if you change the height, the width will automatically change and vice versa), and also select the location Pictures relative to the text (left, right, top, bottom).
Also worth paying attention to the description of the picture. This item is better to fill out, because search engines like to rank it very much.
Insert a link into the text. To do this, select the desired text, click on the highlighted button in the form of an infinity sign and insert the path (URL) to the link in the appeared field.
Change other parameters.
Most of the other parameters (they are individual) are filled intuitively, we will not dwell on them. Filling out items such as Title, Description, Keywords is best left to CEOs. After finishing work with the page, do not forget to click save + close (close a specific page) or save + continue (save the page and leave you there). Voila, after the work done and its preservation, you can see the results on the pages of the site on the Internet!
Finally, recall the underestimated use of hot keys! CTRL + A – select all text, CTRL + C – copy selected text, CTRL + V – paste copied or cut text, CTRL + Z – undo the last action
