The following shapes are rendered when the BodyPart is attached to a content type

Name Display Type Default Location Model Type

ContentItem ContentItem The content item of the part
BodyPart BodyPart The BodyPart instance
TypePartSettings BodyPartSettings The settings of the part


The following properties are available on BodyPart

Name Type Description
Body string The HTML content in the body. It can contain Liquid tags so using it directly might result in unexpected results. Prefer rendering the BodyPart shape instead
Content The raw content of the part
ContentItem The content item containing this part


The Body Part editor can be different for each content type. In the Body Part settings of a content type, just select the one that needs to be used.

There are two predefined editor names:

  • Default is the editor that is used by default
  • Wysiwyg is the editor that provides a WYSIWYG experience

Custom EditorsLink

Customizing the editor can mean to replace the predefined one with different experiences, or to provide new options for the user to choose from.

To create a new custom editor, it is required to provide two shape templates, one to provide the name of the editor (optional if you want to override and existing one), and a shape to render the actual HTML for the editor.


To declare a new editor, create a shape named Body_Option__{Name} where {Name} is a value of your choosing. This will be represented by a file named Body-{Name}.Option.cshtml.

Sample content:

    string currentEditor = Model.Editor;
<option value="Wysiwyg" selected="@(currentEditor == "Wysiwyg")">@T["Wysiwyg editor"]</option>

HTML EditorLink

To define what HTML to render when the editor is selected from the settings, a shape named Body_Editor__{Name} corresponding to a file Body-{Name}.Editor.cshtml can be created.

Sample content:

@using OrchardCore.Body.ViewModels;
@model BodyPartViewModel

<fieldset class="form-group">
    <label asp-for="Body">@T["Body"]</label>
    <textarea asp-for="Body" rows="5" class="form-control"></textarea>
    <span class="hint">@T["The body of the content item."]</span>

Overriding the predefined editorsLink

You can override the HTML editor for the Default editor by creating a shape file named Body.Editor.cshtml. The Wysiwyg editor is defined by using the file named Body-Wysiwyg.Editor.cshtml.
