What is StaticSaver

StaticSaver is a plugin for MODX Revolution that automatically sets up the name of file and media source of element (template, chunk, snippet, TV or plugin) when wanting to make this element be static. This is a simple helper for MODX developers.


First install the package via the Package Management or download from Repository.

After that, you need to configure Media Sources and System Settings. You should filter system settings by namespace "staticsaver" to get all related settings.

You can see detailed video of configuring StaticSaver at YouTube.
