Orange team commits a yellow card slide tackle on blue, but play is allowed on through advantage. The blue team scores.
Should the orange player still receive a yellow card for the challenge?

It doesn't matter what the outcome of the advantage is. If the offence needs caution/warning/card/sent off right away, it still deserves it afterwards and has to be sanctioned at the first stop, before play resumes.
From the FIFA Laws of the Game:
If the referee plays the advantage for an offence for which a caution / send off would have been issued had play been stopped, this caution / send off must be issued when the ball is next out of play, except for the denial of an obvious goal-scoring opportunity when the player is cautioned for unsporting behaviour.
Advantage should not be applied in situations involving serious foul play, violent conduct or a second cautionable offence unless there is a clear opportunity to score a goal. The referee must send off the player when the ball 105 is next out of play but if the player plays the ball or challenges/interferes with an opponent, the referee will stop play, send off the player and restart with an indirect free kick, unless the player committed a more serious offence.
