The Inline PHP widget acts very similar to the Snippet Widget, except it runs the content of the widget as if it were a Snippet.


Simply place your PHP code in the content panel, and return the output of your widget.

For example, this will display "Hello, World!":

return 'Hello, World!';

A few notes about using this:

  • Do not "echo" content, as it will be ignored
  • Do not use $modx->resource in your widget, as there is no active resource for the dashboard
  • Do not put a closing PHP tag at the end of your code! For some reason, it gets parsed incorrectly (as of MODX 2.2.8)
