    Can I use MVC/.Net Core to create custom section pages


    When I last used Umbraco 8 I created a custom section and there was a limitation where I had to use AngularJS in order to send and receive data from a SQL database.

    1. If I use Umbraco 10/11 could I now use the usual MVC/.Net Core code to send/receive data from a SQL database and display in a table or a control?

    2. Is there a template I could use to have a standard layout for the custom section?

    Appreciate any advice or examples I could follow.

    Thank you

    Hi Linx,

    In Umbraco 11 the backoffice is still built using AngularJS, so this hasn't changed between U8 & U11. There are work-arounds where you can use other libraries/webcomponents in the backoffice (like Blazor), but simply using MVC is not an option.

    There is a new backoffice planned on the Umbraco roadmap for Umbraco 13 that will get rid of AngularJS, but that'll have to wait until the end of the year!

    Kind regards,
