TinymceWrapper: Customizing Ace Editor https://qreativ.space/tutorials/content-management-system/modx/tinymcewrapper-customizing-ace.html If you’re using the TinymceWrapper Extra you can customize the Ace editor window so it better matches the style of the MODX Manager by overriding the hard-coded CSS in the plugin.

Softpress Abruptly Shuts Down https://qreativ.space/articles/web-design/softpress-abruptly-shuts-down.html To many Freeway Pro held on long past its “Use by” date.

Panic Coda 2: A Quick Look https://qreativ.space/reviews/software/web-development/front-end/coding/panic-coda-2.html A review of software developer Panic’s newest version of their all-in-one text-editor, Coda 2.

MODX Alphanumeric Password Validator https://qreativ.space/tutorials/content-management-system/modx/modx-alphanumeric-password-validator.html A custom validator for the MODX Register snippet that limits password characters to alphanumeric, hyphens and underscores only.
