  • Orchard vulnerability patched - please upgrade to 0.5.145

    This morning, we discovered a vulnerability in Orchard 0.5.
    We just released 0.5.145 that replaces 0.5.144 and that fixes that vulnerability. Please upgrade any Orchard instance you may have exposed to the Internet.
    http://orchard.codeplex.com/releases/view/45076
    Ugrading can be done by extracting the new archive over the old one (make sure that the folders coincide, for example, the Orchard.Web.0.5.145.zip archive contains an Orchard folder that really is the root of the web site).
    Before you do that though, make sure to back-up your site, in particular the contents of the App_data and Media folders, as well as any changes you may have done in Modules or Themes.
    WebPI packages have also been updated.
    If you are enlisted into the source, the fix is also be available now by synchronizing your enlistment to the latest from default or dev.
    We are sorry about the inconvenience.

  • Extending the SiteMap

    Extending the SiteMap A couple of days ago I published a VERY simple SiteMap for Orchard. After some great help from Sébastien Ros, I updated the module to be a little more extensible! Any module can now depend on Orchard.SiteMap and push feeds into the sitemap, all they have to-do is create a provider…
  • Creating a sitemap module for Orchard

    “A site map (or sitemap) is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users”

    I recently read a excellent article by Jeff Atwood about the importance of having a sitemap… Currently Orchard has no sitemap but with the great developer platform for creating modules, adding sitemap support is dead simple!

  • Clay: malleable C# dynamic objects – part 2

    In the first part of this post, I explained what requirements we have for the view models in Orchard and why we think dynamic is a good fit for such an object model.

    This time, we’re going to look at LouisClay library and how you can use it to create object graphs and consume them.

  • HTTP dynamic compression for Azure web roles

    Since Upgrading from Oxite to Orchard I have been very busy tweaking the settings… All the SEO sites/tools recommended that I turn on gzip compression

  • Growing pains

    First off, sorry for flooding all your RSS readers!!! I had some… let’s call them technical difficulties getting my Orchard installation to work with feedburner!!!

    Although Orchard’s RSS infrastructure is VERY well thought out, it assumes that I will be accessing it using the generated links and therefore it uses relative source URI’s
