Hi, am an ASP.NET developer with few years experience developing web-forms apps. Am currently new to Orchard & am really looking for something i can quickly setup in minutes & get going. Unfortunately, looks like Orchard is not too promising but am still exploring this CMS. I want to create a custom homepage, with the FeatureItemSlider module & some other specific page layouts. Do i need to create a module & install it in order to achieve this or what other better/faster ways can i achieve this within my site dashboard. (Am currently using the Contoso theme)
