I am new to Orchard. Forgive me if this was already asked.

I created a content type and added a field of Enumeration type. However, I am unable to find a way to add values (via configuration, not programming) to this field to show as dropdown.

I have Drupal experience, and adding such values is a natural step in adding/configuring a field. We are hoping to migrate our website to Orchard, and I am testing it out.

Thanks for help!

In the created content type, just expand the enumeration field you have added.

urbanit, Thanks soooooooooooooo much for your help. I almost planned to abandon the idea of testing and choosing Orchard. It is so counter-intuitive for Orchard to add values for a dropdown field after it is created. It should be a step in the adding a field process.

Thanks for your input. I want to continue to my test of Orchard. Heard it is good, and hope I not have too much head scratch.
