  • Easy custom RSS in Orchard

    Orchard adds RSS automatically to everything that looks like a list of content items: blog posts, of course, but also comments, projections, lists, search results, tags, etc. I’ve explained before how RSS works internally, but adding a new feed from code can look like a daunting task if you’re not an experienced Orchard developer. Fortunately, there is another feature related to RSS that makes it possible to create custom RSS without writing a line of code.

Since the Orchard 1.4 release notes just don't capture the coolness of this release, I thought I would play Orchard Developer Evangelist for a day and provide much more detail and context around the new features in Orchard 1.4 and why now is a great time to learn more about this ASP.NET MVC Content Management System ( CMS ).

  • Projector Module In Orchard

    Over the past few weeks I have been playing with the new Projector Module in Orchard CMS. The Projector Module isn't available in the Orchard Gallery yet, but you can download it by enlisting in the Orchard Source Code on CodePlex. Although still in beta, the Projector Module works fine in a lot of the simple scenarios in which I have been testing it. I won't go into the Projector Module in detail since it isn't fully available yet, but I thought I would show you some screenshots just to give you a taste of what it can do. Note that some or all of this may change by the time it is available, but here is an example of using it to display featured and sale products for our e-commerce website based on Orchard CMS.
