    After creating a news Item then going to a page and dragging the News View Control onto the page I see a message where the control should be saying "Cannot find template "~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/News/ListPageMaster.ascx".

    Any thoughts on what may be causeing this?

    Hello Ted,

    You have mapped the external template - ListPageMaster or NewsViewControlDesigner through App_Data/Configuration/Telerik.Sitefinity.Configuration.ControlsConfig.xml  or you have set the  public property of NewsView control - ItemListTemplatePath to this location ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/News/ListPageMaster.ascx".

    Currently the control is looking for its external template, but it is not locates inside ~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/News/ and you get an error. There are two options

    1.Remove the mapping

    2. Add the external template ( you can get all templates from your account >> Downloads section)  in the location you have set.

    Best wishes,
