Hello, I am evaluating Orchard as our CMS. I have experience in Drupal development and we are currently using another proprietary ASP.NET CMS (which we are going to abandon). I want to know more about Orchard. I have the following questions about Orchard:

Can I create a block of content (such as a calendar or contact information) within Orchard and then specify a few pages (URLs) and page regions for this block to only show up on these pages and regions?

Is there any mature online shopping package available? (This is not a crucial point).

Any input or pointers would be very much appreciated.
