    As a developer I love using Umbraco and I have been using Umbraco 6 to many projects. Many times I extend the tree with new content for my customers.

    I have been looking at U7 and it looks difficult to create new content but are there any good tutorials or VS-ready projects for the tree for U7?

    I also dont like the UI of U7 and I wish there was a U6 UI to be used in U7.

    Here's some links for inspiration: (you could even write trees like you used to in v6, that should still work)

    As for the UI: that's too bad. The UI was made for the end-users, the people who will be editing websites, not specifically for you, the developer of the site. Maybe if you can elaborate on what exactly you don't like, we can improve things but there will never be a v6 "skin" for v7.

    v7 is the way to go .. :-)

    But the UI on v7 is much more easy to use when you have taken the time to learn it :-)

    We have had a lot of feedback from clients/ end users that they much prefer the UI and content editing experience in u7.

    As a developer, I have found it a lot easier to extend, for example custom data types. If you haven't done any AngularJS there maybe a bit to learn but once you get used to it, you won't want to go back to u6 :)
