I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Scaffolding

    The MvcScaffolding package makes creating a CRUD interface extremely easy. It should be just as easy in Orchard. How about a OrchardScaffolding NuGet package?

                  Would be nice to see support for workspaces. The idea is, that a editor/admin/<you name it> can create drafts (new pages, edit pages etc.), store them in an user specific storage, review them in the original site layout and finally publish them or propose them for publishing if changes needed to be reviewed by a user with more rights.

                  • Documentation for Developers

                    This is very necessary.
                    I wrote few modules and had big problems with understanding how orchard works.
                    And I am still confused, but I like orchard.
                    I have a strong desire to know how it works, but there are no clear documentation.
                    Vote guys!

                    • VB.net compatibility for module writing

                      Currently it seems there are issues creating modules in VB due to Claysharp. Prevents me (and maybe others too?) from committing to Orchard.

                      • Knowledge Base module

                        An advanced Knowledge Base module.
                        Would be great for companies that can take advantage of the cms users to let them update documentation in a KB for customers.

                        • Cloning and drag'n'drop functionality for admin widgets

                          When have a lot of widgets to manage or a localized site that need to repeat most of them, it would be great if we could clone them (like in Content) and also drag and drop to sort.

                              • Shortcodes, Independent Templates and CSS

                                Orchard CMS is missing a flexible and easy theme-engine. I know it supports layers so one can customize the look but it's not flexible! Flexibility is a key here, it should take only a few minutes to integrate a custom HTML template by simply defining the placeholders/zones, placeholder in the head section for custom JS,CSS,META and placeholder in the closing BODY tag for JS and other stuff. IMHO there is too much HTML markup being added by shapes and template system is not flexible enough. I'd love to have an option to choose the template and the placeholder/zone where to…

                                    I would love to see all modules and services in Orchard to be hosted separately as microservices, and communicate with each other via HQ messaging.
                                    Implementing that will make the scalability super easy and more efficient, and the maintenance to be more fun

                                        • Classification and more information on each module in the Gallery

                                          The Gallery needs to be much more better.
                                          Better classification and more information on each module.
                                          In Module details it must have the compatible versions example 1.6 and above .. or something like that. Screenshots of the module must be required, and demo page must be optional but next to the Project site link so that we can access it at once.
                                          conclusion:
                                          Ask users to add the following info in the Gallery items:
                                          - Compatibility
                                          - Screen shots
                                          - Demo Link
                                          - Better classification (nice use of taxonomy)
