    I have followed the example to create a custom tree but cannot get my head around the concept of adding a Datatype to it.

    For instance, say I want to have a CREATE function and when this is fired it would display a new node containing a textfield or a RTE which can then be saved.

    Do I have to create an angular-based setup or can I call the required datatypes when creating.

    Can't find any examples that reflect this scenario. thanks

    Hi Stephen,

    Custom trees/ sections are not meant for managing content, If you want to manage content outside of the site I would suggest making a second root node.

    If you want to store non content items i.e geo locations. You could look at Fluidity - https://our.umbraco.com/packages/backoffice-extensions/fluidity/ Which allows you to create a custom section as well as setting up a content like edit page for them.

    Hope this helps

    Matt
