Orchard "shape tracing"
A very quick, and short, post to point to a feature of Orchard called "Shape Tracing" that allows you to work out how a page is composed, and what views you'd need to create (and indeed it will create them for you!) to override presentation.
After my recent tweak to add a "Summary" field to blog posts, so I could alter how the "recent blog posts" widget rendered, I wanted to see if I could extend this to other areas of Orchards blogging bits - it looks like Shape Tracing is a great way to work out how to do this.
My skillset has matured somewhat since then, which you'll probably see from the posts here. You can read a bit more about me on the about page of the site, or check out some of the other posts on my areas of interest.
