Modx Hack
10 October 2008

I write this post mainly for my own benefit so I can have somewhere to go back and reference when I need to do this again one year from now after I have forgotten what it was I did.

At work we use Modx a lot for CMS projects. One cool but annoying feature is the "QuickEdit" bar that allows you to make page edits from the page instead of from the manager. The problem is that the quick edit bar uses a Javascript library that often breaks other Javascript on your site - but only if you're currently logged into the manager. Which means, you often won't be able to test while you're logged in and making changes, that you need to test.

Here is the hack to remove the bar.


In the function, mergeLinks change $allowed=true; to $allowed=false;
