Whenever i push myself to dig into orchard i encounter strange problem. I hope i missed simple thing in this case.

I am trying to create new content type named Product by dashboard and i leave Id of content "Product" and add field "Name" then i create that content type. It notify me that Product content is created but i can not find it in content items any. 

I am using latest version which i downloaded now reagain.  What is wrong ?

I am exactly creating first new content type then creating that content item  and it is not in content items list. ... Any idea ? Problem can cause by Operating system ? I am using windows 7 , visual studio 2010 with service packs. Please tell something aabout that...

Now i did some progress. If i make that content type Common so it is appearing in content items list. Content items restricted to be common for be in content items list ?

It's madatory if you want to see those content items in the Contents page. The reason is that on this page there is a sort by creation date, which is only defined by CommonPart. This is a "inner join" issue. Should be resolved when we make the Common mandatory, and also when "left joini" kind of queries are available in the content manager.
