I must be doing something wrong because I've been stuck on this for a long time and I'm only getting more confused.
First, is there some unwritten rule that the solution must be named Orchard.sln and the project folder must be named Orchard.Web?
I ask because I've been trying to get the orchard console to create a theme without generating an error, but it kept telling me that it couldn't find the solution named Orchard.sln and it couldn't find the Themes.csproj.
I don't have a Themes project and my solution is named something useful, not Orchard.sln.
So just to test, I changed the name of my solution to Orchard.sln even though I would rather it be named something useful so that I can find it in my project list in visual studio. When I do this, I don't get the error about the solution and I specified
/CreateProject:true /IncludeInSolution:true. this didn't generate an error, but when I opened my solution I got an error that the path to one of the projects was wrong. I opend the sln file i a text editor and found that the console had added a new project
named "TestTheme3" with a path of "Orchard.Web\Themes\TestTheme3\TestTheme3.csproj"
I kindof sortof understand that Orchard keeps the files for supporting projects in sub folders under the web project, but that is definitly not my Orchard project path. In fact I didn't change my project path at all. It is still exactly what it was in the
Zip file, "Orchard". Nowhere have I read anything saying I should change the name of this folder or name my solution a specific name and if so, then why didn't the zip just come with the correct name and solution file?
Maybe I'm doing something completly wrong, but this is driving me crazy. I can't even get to the point of actually trying to figure out how to create a customized theme because I'm stuck trying to get the project paths right and fighting with the console.
