CustomRequest is an extra by jako, first released on 2018-07-06.

Package Description

CustomRequest is an effective routing plugin for MODX Revolution to map pretty but not found URLs to a MODX resource and set the request parameters by separating the URI path at the URI separators or by a regular expression.

As standard option the first characters of the not found URI will be compared with the alias value of each config entry. If found, this config entry is used. The alias path is stripped from the not found URI and the remaining string is used to set the request parameters.

As a second option, the alias value of a config entry could contain a valid regular expression and the not found URI will be matched with that expression. If matched, this config entry is used. The first subpattern part of the expression is stripped from the found pattern and the remaining  string is used to identify the resource where the user is forwarded to later. At least the found pattern is removed from the not found URI and the remaining string is used to set the request parameters.

For full details and some example configurations see the documentation.
