    I'm really excited about this next tutorial where I demonstrate one way to develop a custom widget for Orchard Core CMS. Again, we will be using The Blog Theme since it ships with Orchard Core. This is the 3rd part of a series on theme development in Orchard Core.

  • Adding a New Zone to The Blog Theme Layout in Orchard Core CMS

    10/20/2018 1:14:00 PM

I want to continue this idea by adding a new zone to the layout of The Blog Theme. This will provide more...

In addition to a blog, the setup recipe also creates a custom content type, called Article. There is something about each article that I would like to change, however. Every article has the same (hardcoded) background...
