Thanks Josh, I appreciate the help.

I do indeed love MODx. Since I jumped into it straight from just an HTML/CSS background, the transition to it was quite simple compared to if I had WP beforehand. Because of that I am hesitant to try anything else. WordPress will always be a blog platform, it may try and expand to other areas, but its core strength will always be “bloggy”. But MODx (I use revo) has always been expansive, but so much so that at times it feels unfocused and less refined. It can do a lot, but not a lot of it is done perfectly. But I like the flexibility of having a CMS that I can add functionality to like an expansion pack. I want blogging? Fine I will add that module, or e-commerce, fine I will add VisionCart. At times adding capabilities is as simple as a plugin, but the choices are still a little limited especially compared to WP, but half of WP’s plugins are spotty at best.
