    I have seen the article on how to create a custom content type using Thunder in Visual Studio:

    However, the article does not tell how to set a Parent Type on the new content type, nor does the "Add New Item" wizard offer the option to do so.

    (If I create a custom type using the ModuleBuilder, in the Admin web site, then I do get an option to specify the Parent Content type.)

    Is it possible? Does it have to be coded by manually? If so, how?

    Hello Andy,

    Generated modules by Thunder do not have hierarchical structure by default as the Dynamic Modules and this needs, custom implementation. 

    I would recommend you using the Module Builder as it has different out-of-the-box functionality including automatic upgrade, extensibility and MVC support. In case there is no special reason to use Custom module you can take a look on the Dynamic modules functionality on the above links.

    I hope this helps.
