If not specified, all columns are selected.&where - (Opt) A JSON expression of criteria to build any additional where clauses from. An example would be&where=`{{"alias:LIKE":"foo%", "OR:alias:LIKE":"%bar"},{"OR:pagetitle:=":"foobar", "AND:description:=":"raboof"}}`.&sortby - (Opt)Field to sort by.&sortdir - (Opt)Order which to sort by.&orderby - (Opt) Sorting by multiple fields. For example &orderby = `parent ASC, id DESC`&limit - Limits the number of rows returned.&offset - An offset of rows returned by the criteria to skip.&ids - (Opt)commaseperated list of ids.&idField - (Opt)fieldname for idField if other than 'id'.&outerTpl - (Opt)wrapper template with placeholder [[+output]] for items.&tpl - Row template. [NOTE: if not provided, properties are dumped to output for each row]&tplOdd - (Opt)Template for rows with an odd idx value (see idx property).&tplFirst - (Opt)Template for the first row (see first property).&tplLast - (Opt)Template for the last row (see last property).&idx - You can define the starting idx of the rows, which is an property that is incremented as each row is rendered.&first - Define the idx which represents the first row (see tplFirst).&last - Define the idx which represents the last row (see tplLast).&toplaceholder - If set, will assign the result to this placeholder instead of outputting it directly.&debug - If true, will send the SQL query to the MODx log.
