My diffuculties arises in creating a container page. I found articles decribing it is as simple as creating an empty page type.
Thus when I create an instance of this page type I end up with a normal episerver page. I see no icen in the edit tree.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
This blog post explains how this works: http://world.episerver.com/Blogs/Linus-Ekstrom/Dates/2013/12/Customizing-the-look-and-behavior-in-the-UI-for-your-content-types/
Container pages based on custom interface: http://tech-fellow.net/2014/01/31/add-support-container-pages-episerver-7-5/
Unfortunaly I only got the code in Linus example to work as expected.
Well, my approach was excatly the same (setting icon and default view) just a bit more generalized :) Anyway - glad you found a solution!
