Custom Content Overview in Admin UI



I am trying to figure out the "right" or at least the best way to manage custom content in EPiServer's admin.

Basically I have a bunch of custom types (IContent) and would like to have an overview page for each of these accessible somewhere in the Admin UI. Just a basic page with a "Create new"-button, a search-box and a list where the admin can see existing items. Pretty standard, but I cannot find any out of the box solution. Am I just missing a feature for this or how would you guys solve this? There will be > 1000 items, so I need a nice and clean way to find and edit these.

Sounds like something I would implement as an admin plugin. Using MVC this is just a normal controller which you decorate with the GuiPlugIn attribute. See Contrary to the webforms case where there is a masterpage you can use, with MVC you have to implement your own layout but you can mimic the way standard plugins are implemented, to get the proper css and js:es for the Episerver look of buttons, sections etc.
