The MODX News Feed on the Manager dashboard seems to me to be a bit underused.
Currently, the latest headline is from 14th Jan 2019 - the MODX Amsterdam Meetup announcement.
There’s been loads of news since then [indeed, much of it announced in Amsterdam], not least the launch of the new website and this great new Community Forum. But not a peep on the newsfeed!
I think this is a missed opportunity on two counts.
Firstly, a slow news feed reflects badly on MODX as a project. Keeping the feed fresh is an easy and cheap way to assure users that MODX is alive & kicking, vibrant and dynamic.
Secondly, it’s a great way to entice users to engage with the community - and we all know how important that is.
Almost every MODX user will see the News Feed pop up several times a day and at the moment we all just glance past it because we know it’s content is static.
