Ways to render lists of things

In this post, we are going to check out some of the ways available to us to render lists in Orchard and do a nice deep-dive. We are going to see not only how we can customize the individual shape items, but also how we can take over the entire rendering of the list. If this sounds familiar, then you have probably read Bertrand's post on taking over list rendering in orchard. To me that post, together with many others, was one of the keys to getting a firmer grasp on shapes and templates, so a shout-out to all the great Orchard bloggers out there, on whose shoulders we now stand. This post will go a little deeper and show a few more techniques related to lists, shapes, placement and templates.
