Hi there!

This is my first post here, so please be kind :)

I have created a custom content type called "Client Testimonials" and would like to reuse a Content item of this type on various places across my website. It could for instance be in the sidebar on one page, or in the main area of the homepage.

My initial idea was to make a widget of this Content item and place it in the various site layers, but that doesn't seem to be possible.

What is the easiest way in Orchard to reuse a piece of content across multiple pages? I'm basically a front end developer, so I would love a solution that doesn't involve any coding in the backend.

Thanks!

What you need is a widget, but unfortunately currently you can't do that without writing a bit of code. See http://orchardproject.net/docs/Writing-a-widget.ashx.
