    New to Umbraco and still exploring it as a possible option for future sites.

    Does Umbraco have anything equivalent to the Dynamic Modules and Module Builder UI of Sitefinity?

    Basically, a generic builder UI for custom database tables (including hierarchical) a default series of page widgets to select/render query results, and an API to access the custom data for advanced development.

    There is a package called Fluidity that allows you to extend the Umbraco backend to allow the management of custom data in tables:

    Generally, though, in Umbraco you would store this kind of data within the actual CMS as nodes (without templates). These could be nested. So you could have a repository of "modules" with each module based on a document type and then you can added these modules to a page using a Multi Node Tree Picker.

    Thanks for that.

    I had seen Fluidity and figured that was probably what I needed, but just wanted confirmation from people with more than "5mins" exposure to Umbraco.

    I'm comfortable working with that to get what I need, but I'm surprised that such a basic requirement as a custom-data module builder isn't a standard feature of the Umbraco "backoffice" UI.
