Hi,

I've been trying to get WidgetAlternatesFactory made by sfmskywalker on http://orchard.codeplex.com/workitem/17784 and so far I haven't had any success. I've been checking the override method and it doesn't seem to read any of the widgets I added to my Orchard site. Am I using an old code or am I doing something wrong with my implementation?

Thanks,
EDGend

You should ask him directly.

Hi sir,

I already sent him the question. While we're on the subject, how would you handle customizing any widget to change it's layout per zone?

Thanks

With the widget alternates feature.

Hi sir,

Sorry, I'm still getting used to Orchard. I've used the Widget Alternate. But I have another problem, my widget alternate 'Widget-AfterMain' and I want to "manually" display the list... Should I just use ShapeTracer for that?

Thanks

What do you mean by manually?

Sorry I guess I used the wrong question...

My problem's clearer now, I have two Container Widgets on the same page/layer and I want to make separate alternates for for each Container Widget per zone.
