I'm experienced in MVC and Webforms, but new to Orchard. I'm trying to add the registration form for new users to one of the zones in my page. I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this. Does it require creating a new custom view for this page and adding the registration form programmatically, or is there a built-in way to do this via the CMS?

I've been searching for existing solutions w/o any success. Fundamentally -- what's the best way to render forms and such used by a module (eg membership) elsewhere in the app? The membership module includes log in, register, forgot password, etc. How can I add those to other places in the app?

You could write a widget.
