Wayfinder in MODx Revolution

Sharing is Caring

When I first tried MODx Revolution (which I did try before MODx Evolution) I found the documentation to be pretty good except about snippet syntax. The tag syntax has changed from MODx Evolution to MODx Revolution.

[Wayfinder? &startId=`0`]

has to changed to

[[Wayfinder? &startId=`0`]]

More information can now be found here for all of the tag syntax changes.

    Brian the tag syntax for snippets are as follows:

    Evolution Syntax:
    [[Wayfinder? &startId=`0`]] for normal cached
    [!Wayfinder? &startId=`0`!] for uncached

    Revolution Syntax

    [[Wayfinder? &startId=`0`]] for normal cached
    [[!Wayfinder? &startId=`0`]] for uncached

    The difference is, now all MODx tags use the double square bracket and add additional reference symbol to distinguish so [[Snippet]] or [[$chunk]] or [[+placeholder]].
