Elements are the building blocks or design patterns that you use to create sites and themes. Elements usually include HTML markup and a corresponding group of controls (“Settings”) accessed from the gear icon in the front-end. Elements can include Twig logic in the markup to do things like show or hide parts of a page depending on the conditions you set in the Settings.

Support the team building MODX with a monthly donation.

The budget raised through OpenCollective is transparent, including payouts, and any contributor can apply to be paid for their work on MODX.
