Tags are used within Modx to allow you to substitute defined values with a value that you have defined elsewhere in the application. This allows you to create a formatted page (or template) that you can modify by simply replacing the tags that you defined in the page. One of the many type of tags that are used in Modx is the chunk tag.
If you have a value on a webpage that represents a meeting place that randomly changes, you can define that "chunk" of text in the Modx administrator to update the value on the webpage. The tag can then be placed in the Modx website without having to use the actual text. The chunk tag represents the text on the page or template within the Modx website. This makes changes on the web page quicker and simpler since you don't need to find the value buried in the code of the page.
The following article walks you though an example of creating the simple tag for a resource called a chunk.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are using an editor like the TINYMCE, you will need to add the tag WITHOUT using that editor. The TinyMCE (or other editors) will attempt to add HTML code with the tag and therefore render it inoperable. To turn off the TinyMCE editor go to the bottom of the editor and click on TOGGLE EDITOR (as shown below). The correct form for the tag is also shown below.
Tags are basically placeholders for various types of text or code that you can substitute within the templates or pages that make up your Modx website. Chunks specifically can be represented by tags in the Modx website or template to make editing the website's large text sections a much easier and organized task. The power of these tags is their ability to make it easy to replace a large section within a website without having to directly re-program the website. Changes can also be made directly to the tag content so that you simply have to change the tags in order to update your website. The example presented above was a sample using the CHUNK tag. For further information on tags, please go to Commonly used tags within Modx.
