Dear everybody,

I've just used Orchard for few days. I don't know how to customize the details of blog posts. For example, I don't know the name of post details .chtml and the syntax for customize it. Please give me some hint about this (like some tutorial, documents or ebooks).

Thank alot.

You should install the Designer Tools module and enable the Shape Tracing feature: http://www.orchardproject.net/docs/Customizing-Orchard-using-Designer-Helper-Tools.ashx

By default, blog posts are using the standard content.cshtml template, but you can override it with an alternate that is specific to blog posts. You should also learn about placement, that enables you to move things around and suppress output of some parts without touching templates: http://www.orchardproject.net/docs/Understanding-placement-info.ashx
