Hello Friends

I am totally new to Orchard CMS, all I have done is watched the introductory videos via PluralSight.

Before delving into Orchard and learning it, I was wondering, what are its limitations ? Can it for example content manage something like this demo news site. Where news articles are placed in different categories, with tickers on homepage, sliders ... etc

Also, can an archive page be automatically generated of all the news articles, and have them separated by date, or an optional filter by Article author .. etc

How about a content managed gallery ? Where users can filter all images by Author of image ... etc

Also, if you were given a design (PSD file) and had to code the HTML / CSS and make the whole thing Orchard CMS driven, how much roughly would you charge ? I expect it'll be expensive, but any figures ?

I would greatly appreciate some help.

Thank You.

All this is possible with Orchard and a few modules, yes.
