Orchard CMS 1.9.3 and Orchard CMS 1.10 were released a few weeks ago. I upgraded my personal Orchard CMS Website to Orchard 1.9.3. If you need help upgrading your Orchard CMS Website, contact me.
Orchard CMS 1.9 Features
If you haven't upgraded your Orchard CMS Website to 1.9 or 1.10, you may want to do so to take advantage of several new features available in Orchard 1.9 or later. The main features in Orchard 1.9 are Orchard Layouts, Dynamic Forms, and the Audit Trail which I have mentioned in several blog posts.
- Audit Trail in Orchard CMS 1.9
- Audit Trail Part in Orchard CMS
- Snippets in Orchard Layouts
- Elements in Orchard Layouts
- Dynamic Forms and Anti-Spam Elements in Orchard CMS Layouts
- Develop Custom Form Elements for Dynamic Forms in Orchard CMS
- Export Dynamic Forms Data to CSV File in Orchard CMS
- Parameterized Snippets in Orchard CMS
Orchard CMS Layouts
As an Orchard Web Developer I have been developing a lot of custom snippets and elements for use with Orchard Layouts and Dynamic Forms. An end-to-end example showing the power of Orchard Elements that I mentioned in my blog is for use in an e-commerce website using Snipcart.
In the example I mention several ways to use Snipcart for e-commerce with Orchard CMS and show screenshots of Orchard Layout Elements built to add Buy Now, Show Cart, and Cart Summary information on your Orchard E-Commerce Website. There are also features to leverage Content Items, Content Parts, Orchard Workflow, Tokens, etc. as well as support for Snipcart Webhooks.
I've done a similar solution for Stripe Checkout, but haven't blogged about it yet. These examples show the power of Orchard CMS and the new Orchard Layouts and Dynamic Forms.
