I am a newbie for customizing Orchard.

I have this situation, wondering if it is even possible to be done in Orchard.

I would like to add a section called "Document" with security only Admin and that user can access.

The steps:

1. When a user registered to the site, it will create a folder for document/media the same as username.

2. When that user login automatically it will only shows that user items.

3. When admin login, it will shows all user items group by the user names.

4. When user upload item, the admin will get notification via email.



PS: I am not looking for someone to build this for me. If someone could let me know if this is available out of the box or have to customize it. (Where could I find the documentation to achieve this?)

You could try some of those:

Thank you so much Bertrand.

I will definitely try one of the modules.

Hi Bertrand,

I looked into the modules and it does not serve my purpose.

Some of them are licensed and have more features than I need.

Some of them are just document gallery without any security build in around it.

Well, you'll have to build your own then, or start with one of these and extend it.
