Want something that wasn’t included with MODx Revolution?
You can find out a little bit more about the Extras repository if you read Package Management and 3rd Party Components. The repository has tuns of useful packages, including snippets, add-ons, templates and the list goes on. I have put together a list of some very useful Extras to get you started.

This snippet will help you keep your site optimized for search engines and save you a lot of time when creating a template by automatically doing almost all of the Meta work for you. For a full description and detailed support and instructions visit http://salscode.com/index.php?id=93.
This snippet will create a breadcrumb page trail navigation. It allows many configuration options such as limiting the number of crumbs shown, insertion of custom characters between crumbs, and hiding breadcrumbs on your home page to name a few.
getResources is a general-purpose listing and summarization snippet for MODx Revolution. Note: MODx recommends using getResources instead of Ditto, as Ditto will be phased out.
