Custom Module Not Showing Under Widgets

Topics: Customizing Orchard
Feb 16, 2016 at 9:46 PM
I am creating a custom module for "latest news" type of functionality. I have been following the docs on the Orchard website ( and despite following this tutorial I cannot see the widget show up when I click on the "widgets" from the admin in order to assign it to a layer.

I am able to enable/disable the module and it appears to be working correctly on this page, but it doesn't show up on the Widgets section of the admin.

I have spent hours trying to find any answers, but haven't been able to so I'm reaching out here in hopes someone can offer some advice. How do I get my custom module to show up under Widgets? All I have done at this point is followed along with the tutorial they have on their website.

Did you ever resolve this - I've just hit the same issue with version 1.10

Looks like I've resolved it
  1. I'd changed the name of the widget, everywhere but in the file!!!
  2. And... I needed to put a value into the Position field when adding the widget
So the first one was my fault (slaps own wrist), but the second more subtle
