I’ve been reading documents and old forum posts, and am still having a difficult time understanding how to do this. I’d prefer not to use the @INHERIT ability as I fear clients wouldn’t know how to nest a resource and would prefer to keep to keep it simple for them.
Here is what I am attempting, from my understanding.
Hello [[*name]], you’ve got [[*count]] mesages
Maybe it isn’t working because I did not give the TV any access to a chunk? If so, I do not know how to do that. Maybe my understanding of the code is wrong.
Use tags with a plus instead of an asterisk inside the chunk:
Hello [[+name]], you’ve got [[+count]] mesages
By passing in the value to the chunk as a property, it becomes a placeholder inside the chunk.
Thanks for the response. I got it working (it takes a while for me, I work in an open office and cannot focus). Got it working, but I am losing the template variable info when navigating unfortunately. I think I’ll have to try the @INHERIT route that Bob had mentioned in another post
EDIT: I like editing my comments so I can refer to them later, reminders for myself, and also for any other struggling newbie modx developer out there.
I’m a dingus. Here is the exact code that works for me, but also be sure to give your template variables access to the templates they need to be on.
[[*loan-officer-name]] is the name of the template variable
This goes on template website
This goes on the chunk
