  • Migrate from SQL Compact Edition to SQL Server

    The installation of Orchard CMS is really fast and you do not even need SQL Server because Orchard CMS can run with SQL Server Compact. SQL Compact is great for development and small websites e.g. Landing Pages. In this post I will show how to migrate from SQL Compact Edition to SQL Server in 5 simple steps.

  • Orchard CMS Integration with Slack Messaging

    My favorite parts of Orchard CMS are the behind-the-scenes features that you don't hear too much about, like scheduling tasks, events, workflow, etc. These are incredibly powerful CMS features and most Orchard CMS Developers I talk to rarely utilize them to their fullest. In particular, I love integrating Orchard CMS with external services, especially using Workflow, because it is incredibly empowering to drag-and-drop various components onto a blank canvas to create something very rich and meaningful to your business. And, this morning, I live coded the Slack Incoming Webhook Component from scratch.
