Just like any piece of software, our Extras have minimum requirements to run on your server. We increase these requirements regularly so we can take advantage of new features and possibilities to provide you with better tools.
The following requirements are for all of our extras, and were last updated on 2022-08-30.
- MODX Revolution 2.7.x or up;
- Using MODX with a MySQL database;
- PHP version 7.1 or higher - increasing to 7.4 after January 1st 2023
- Plus all requirements that are needed for MODX
Starting January 1st 2023, we're gradually rolling out a new PHP 7.4 requirement to all our extras. These will be implemented in each extras' first feature release after that date, so if you're not ready to upgrade you can continue using the previous versions for the time being.
Some extras may have other or higher requirements. Keep an eye out for those requirements in the documentation.
We use a rolling support schedule for MODX releases. When a new minor version (e.g. 2.6.0) is released, we continue to support the previous version for one year. We also aim to resolve, or at the very least acknowledge, any conflicts with new versions within two weeks of their stable release.
Following this schedule, we ended support for MODX 2.2 on on July 16th, 2015 (see announcement), for 2.3 on August 19th, 2016 (see announcement), and for 2.4 on April 22nd, 2017 (see announcement). Support for MODX 2.5 expired on March 12th, 2019 (see announcement). Support for MODX 2.6 expired on November 27th, 2019 (see announcement).
Most of our extras support both MODX 2.8+ and MODX 3.0+ from the same version. Some extras may be MODX3-specific, or have MODX3-specific releases. Please note the compatibility information in the meta block at the top of each extras' page for specific information.
The following extras will not be updated to support MODX3:
