Hi,
i've created a new content type with some parts, for example: title, body and Mello's imagegallery.
Then i've create a template to customize the layout of the content type i've created; for the nuw template file i've to start from a blank file and it's quite difficult for me. Is it possible to start to standard cshtml file and modify it?

Thank you

Bye

If you're customizing the Content template for your content type, you could start by copying Content.cshtml from Orchard.Core/Contents/Views into your module's or theme's Views folder and customize it.

Is it possible to create a template for a single part of a content type?
For example only for the imagegallery part of a content type.

Yes. Enable Shape Tracing module and it will show you alternates you can create for parts.
