    Hi there, currently working with the newsview control and looking to change the layout of the singleitem and list templates. My understanding is that I need to download some files as per the following page and so I can see what the templates for the controls look like :- http://www.sitefinity.com/support/kb/sitefinity-3-x/how-to-map-a-view-to-an-external-template-in-sitefinity-3-6-or-later.aspx

    "You can find a complete reference for all Views (controls) in the ControlsConfigReference.xml whichyou will find in Sitefinity_3_6_1870_[standard]/[community]_ExternalTemplates.zip file. It can be downloaded from your Client.Net accounts."

     am in the process of piloting sitefinity for my company and am wondering if can get hold of the templates before
     purchasing or must I purchase a licence before I can modify the layout templates of the newsview control?

    Regards

    Gary

    Hello Gary Thorpe,

    Thank you for using our services.

    You can download the external templates archive from your Client.Net account without having a license for Sitefinity. To do so log-in to your account, go to the Downloads section and download a trial for Sitefinity. The trial is a fully featured version, just without the license file. Once you download a trial you will also have access to additional downloads for the version you are trialing - external templates too.

    If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us.

    All the best,
    Radoslav Georgiev

    Hi Radoslav,
    I have already downloaded the trial version of the software. I am currently using the software hence the question in my previous post. Having downloaded the trial I still can't seem to be able to locate the files. 

    Regards

    Gary
