Paging ListView using DataPager without using DataSource Control
If you have already used the ASP.NET ListView and DataPager controls, you know how easily you can display your data using custom templates and provide pagination functionality. You can do that in only few minutes. The ListView and DataPager controls work perfectly fine in combination with DataSource controls (SqlDataSource, LinqDataSource, ObjectDataSource etc.), however if you use them with custom data collection, without using Data Source controls, you may find some unexpected behavior and have to add some little more code to make it work.

Trigger update to jQuery Tablesorter on dynamically modified table
Several months ago I wrote a blog post about using tablesorter and pager plugins with ASP.NET MVC to beautifully create sorting and pagination features on plain tables and data in your HTML. However, in the past few weeks I have got some reports by users who use these plugins that they have problems when new data is added to the table dynamically on client side. The thing is that the plugin does not know anything about the new data, so, we need to tell the table sorter & pager that there is new data to be considered when sorting and paging operations are performed.

Adding Blog to Your Orchard Website
One of the common features in today’s content management systems is to provide you the ability to create your own blog in your website. Also, having a blog is one of the very often needed features for various types of websites. Out of the box, Orchard gives you this, so you can create your own blog in your Orchard website on a pretty easy way. Besides the fact that you can very easily create your own blog, Orchard also gives you some extra features in relation with the support of blogging, such as connecting third-party client applications (e.g. Windows Live Writer) to your blog, so that you can publish blog posts remotely. You can already find all the information provided in this blog post on the http://orchardproject.net website, however I thought it would be nice to make summary in one blog post.
