Hi there,

I just installed Orchard (v1.6.1.0) for the very first time, everything works great so far. Except for one issue: I tried following the docs in order to modify an existing theme. In order to do so it looks as if I have to install the codegen module first, which I did. I also made sure that it is listed as enabled in the Module section in the backend.

Next, the docs say:

"To enable code generation, click Features under Configuration, find the Code Generation feature, and click Enable."

That's the problem - I don't have the section Configuration in my backend menu. I have Users, Reports, Settings and all the other sections above, but no Configuration.

Is there something I've missed? I already tried logging off and in again, but I guess it must be something else. Thanks for your help in advance!

Those docs look like they need an update. Just find "Modules" in your admin menu.

Thanks for your reply. I think I wasn't specific enough in the first post: I installed the codegen module, it is enabled and listed under Modules. But I couldn't find the command line itself, because I thought that would be some PHP-shell-like feature that I can access from the admin menu ;-) I now found out that it actually is an ordinary binary that I can execute.

The idea of a shell command-line inside Dashboard is pretty interesting:)

It is available in Orchard.Experimental :
