Part Three - Add-Ons

Tips and Tricks for Working With Fred


Fred is a front-end editing system for resources. Its official documentation can be found here. As of this writing, there is only one example Fred theme, the Fred Creative One-Page Theme, which is available in the MODX Extras and can be installed from the Manager's Installer of a MODX site.

While there are general descriptions and explanations in the official docs, there's also a lot left out that can leave a beginning Fred developer in a state of frustration and confusion. This set of recipes will try to help clear up some of the details and options that the docs don't get into.
