So ive been trying Orchard to see if it meets my requirements. So far it seems pretty good but im having some issues figuring out how to set up my solution. Following this documentation: i went for option number 4.

After the installation I figured i'd install some modules and themes using the admin dashboard and doing an online install. I've noticed that the Theme files are copied to %rootsrcdir%\Orchard.Web\Themes for modules this is: %rootsrcdir%\Orchard.Web\Modules.

The question i have now is that if i wanna modify the modules and thems ive just installed, would it be wise to add the existing projects to my Visual Studio solution in the project: Orchard.Web? or is there an better way of doing this?

One thing that you can do is make a copy of the solution file under a different name, and open that in VS. Then add the projects to that solution.
