Hi All, I'm new to Orchard and was wondering what would be the best to use [re: topic] when it comes to a small group of content types [...say 5] that will be infrequently updated? I gather enabling the List Module is the way to go, but was really after an explanation of when to use one over the other and the benefits of such? Thanks for any help, pg.

There are so many reasons to use Projections over Lists, that I can't see any reason to use Lists anymore. RIP.

At least Lists might be faster. But you would have to measure to be sure it's worth the effort.

Ok, so ‘Lists’ are now defunct – but has any help documentation caught up with how to create ‘queries / projections’ from code [I assume via the migration file]?

No, sorry.
