I have a query that's used in a projection page.

I need to have some text above the projection. How can this be accomplished? I'm running Orchard 1.5.1.

Kind regards,

I ended up by making the page part "Projection" attachable, then attach it to a custom content part similar to page.

Does that sound about right...?

Kind regards,

Ya, there's a bunch of ways to do that.  You could attach BodyPart to the projection content type.   It sounds like that's what you did.  You could also use a widget if the text doesn't change per-projection.

I did it the other way around, attach a Projection part to a page-like content type.

Can a widget be limited to a type of content? I think it's only url and/or authenication, right?

Ya, I think out of the box there is not a layer rule for content types.

there is a module (i'm using it too) which can do that on the gallery
