Hi ,

Please find our requirement and give us the solution how to proceed with orchard.

Requirements :

1) We have to provide feature to the customer, to create microsites using given predefined page templates in the orchard CMS.

2) Data has to fetch from our database and need to bind in the appropriate content parts.( We cannot use content types, because in the page all items/fields are interrelated. 

Eg. We will be giving following fields : Title, Image, Description and Document List..etc... Based on the template selection in the orchard CMS we have to change the place of these fields.

Please check and update us if  requirement is not clear.

Thank you,

Senthil

Where are the predefined page templates being defined? Is someone entering them into the CMS, or can you build it as part of your project? If the latter, you could try layout alternates, possibly using the Layout Selector module. See here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6791421/layout-based-on-page-orchardcms
