    How to Create node on Root In umbraco 8 From controller


    I use the following code to create a node from the Controller: which create a node on the base of the Parent node [ParentGuid]:

    using Umbraco.Web.Mvc;
    var contentService = Services.ContentService; 
    var newNode = contentService.Create("node Name", [ParentGuid], "docTypeName");

    Now I need to create a node on the root level, so need guidance on it. How to create a node at the root level?

    Hi BJ

    Historically, if you set the value of the parent to -1

    That means the 'root' of the tree you are creating the item in.

    I say historically, as I haven't done it for a while, and I'm not sure things changed when udi's were introduced, but I reckon it's 'still the way'.
