Calling MODX getResources in Code

In the previous article, we looked at a way to display a “teaser” for upcMODX logooming blog posts and set the &classKey property to select the resources you want. In this one, we’ll ditch most of our code and call getResources to get our list of resources. Note that you can call pdoResources, which is significantly faster, instead of getResources. The pdoResources snippet requires you to install the pdoTools package, but the properties are, for the most part, identical.
