  • Bootstrap 4 Carousel Widget for Orchard Core CMS

    9/3/2018 3:41:00 PM

    I developed a Bootstrap 4 Carousel Widget for Orchard Core CMS. It allows users to add a carousel to their Bootstrap 4 websites with no knowledge of HTML, yet at the same time, allow Orchard Core developers to modify and extend the module for easy customization. I built the widget for an upcoming developer presentation so I purposely used new features in Orchard Core CMS, including: new field...

  • Dynamic Theme Selection in Orchard Core CMS

    8/23/2018 6:17:40 PM

    While developing a new Orchard Core CMS Module I thought about dynamic theme selection in Orchard Core CMS. In the current version of Orchard CMS the administrator has the ability to preview the website using a different theme during his or her active session without changing the current theme on the website. This is a really awesome feature thankful to Orchard's support for theme selectors,...

  • Live Chat Module for Orchard Core CMS

    8/21/2018 8:12:00 PM

    I developed a Live Chat Module for Orchard Core CMS. This is similar to my robots.txt module that I just developed for Orchard Core in that it has custom settings that are populated in the admin dashboard, but different in that we want the live chat to be available on every page of the website. I will be developing a Google Analytics Module for Orchard Core using the same technique. I enabled...

  • Custom Activity for Orchard Core Workflows

    8/17/2018 5:29:00 PM

    Enjoying the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando the past few days. Go Knights! While visiting the campus I spent some down time at the Student Union developing a custom activity for Orchard Core Workflows. If you've read other blog posts of mine, you may know that I am a huge fan of the Workflows Module (and the Rules Engine before it) for extending the functionality of Orchard. I've...

  • ASP.NET Core Bundle and Minify CSS and JS

    8/13/2018 5:36:00 PM

    I love how transparent and easy it is to bundle and minify CSS and JS in an ASP.NET Core Web Application. The BuildBundlerMinifier Package handles the bundling and minification at build time. And, if you want to extend the .NET Core CLI by adding the BundlerMinifier.Core package, you can use the dotnet bundle command to clean, bundle, and watch files from the command line ad hoc. If you're new to...

  • Developing Liquid Template Language Filters in Orchard Core CMS

    8/13/2018 2:38:40 AM

    Orchard Core CMS support the Liquid Template Language developed by Shopify for its e-commerce stores. At least 2 of the themes that come with Orchard Core (at least as of beta 2) use the Liquid Template Language instead of the Razor Template Language. Inspired by this I developed 3 custom themes that also use Liquid, and on this rainy Sunday at Starbucks, I developed a custom Orchard Core Module...
