  • Weekly Podcast 12/10/2013

    Meeting notes:

    • Lots of pull requests were pulled, including tenant info in logs, new role commands. Perf improvements to large file imports.
    • Changes in config for directories containing static resources cause problems potentially for all module and theme authors. Sébastien will look into it, but that may lead to not shipping an Orchard 1.8 before there is a new gallery, and that gallery might have to start empty, because many or most modules won't work.
    • Orchardproject.net discussion going on in forums.
    • Orchard on Mono: it works!
    • Projection RSS: there are two issues. One is that some projections shouldn't have RSS. The other is that the rss associated with projections is inflexible, which is especially visible in the case of external posts where the url should not be the url of the local content item, but the url of the external post. Ultimate solution will be to have RSS as projections.

  • What The Hell Is An Item Template?

    Theming in Orchard is a pretty vast subject. In the docs on theming for Orchard it covers a hell of a lot of content. A good overview but if you are still trying to wrap your head around what the hell is going on in Orchard, a bit overwhelming. A few people have found all the different ways of overriding displays a tough one so this post will try, and possibly fail, to address one aspect of templating: Item Templates.

  • SSL Module

    If you're still learning the new Workflow Module, Media Library, and Media Processing Module recently introduced in Orchard CMS, you'll want to add another module to learn as an Orchard Web Developer - SSL Module. The SSL Module adds Secure Sockets Layer functionality in Orchard, allowing you to enable SSL on the Orchard website. Once the SSL Module is installed you will need to enable it and adjust the settings depending on your needs.
