This about customizing the manager and its templates. For example if you want a customized manager login form.
The MODX manager uses a template much like regular MODX pages. The manager's template files live inside of manager/templates/default directory. You can update the system setting for the manager_theme to point to the new directory.
The way this is set up is just like extending a PHP class: you can override any single file by mimicking the directory structure and updating the manager_theme directory.
|For 2.1 and earlier, you must copy the entire controllers and templates directory for your theme. 2.2 and later let you copy single files.|
For example, to customize just the Manager Login template, you could copy the following file into a new directory:
Copy that file into a new directory, for example here:
Then update your System Setting for manager_theme to point to the newly created custom directory, and the version of the file from the custom directory will override the version of the file from the default directory.
