Since Sitefinity offers the option to create a bearbone template and add RadControls, etc to the template, I am quite surprised to learn that while the pages have version history and the templates do not! Please point me to the right direction if I just overlooked it.
I learnt it the hard way; I added a custom navigation control that I wanted to remove, but I couldn't remove it from the admin due to some CSS issue. (the control buttons (edit, more were not working).
I was hoping that I could go back to a previous version of the template, and I couldn't find such option for it!
At the end, I had to go through the database table (spent like 30min as I didn't know the database schema) to remove the offending control from the database.
Either though I didn't pay the full $1,999 (upgraded from version 3,), I would expect such feature for a CMS selling at this price range.
PS. I just put the control in the master file now. I can still easily edit it in case of an issue, but it sort of defeats the purpose of having a user-editable template within the CMS.
