I'm having trouble finding a "how to" for creating a custom admin section. I think I'm on the right track, I've subclassed LeftAndMain and I've created the SS template files for the left and right. On the left, I have a sitetree list similar to the CommentAdmin.

I don't understand the process of linking the items in the sitetree to an action and how it all ties together with javascript, etc. Basically, on the left side I have a couple of buttons followed by the sitetree menu below it. If the button is clicked, I want an upload form in the main section. If one of the menu items are clicked, I want a CRUD table to show up in the main area. I see how the getEditForm function can load in separate forms by calling other functions in class, so I really just need help getting the left menu to work.

I've looked at this page and it was helpful, but it doesn't cover how to use a sitetree-like menu on the left:

Any help would be appreciated
