    I've added a viewSettings line to the controlsConfig file for the Newsletter CommandPanel, but it doesn't seem to work.
    Can anyone tell me if i've used the correct hostType?

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <viewSettings hostType="Telerik.Notifications.Newsletters.WebControl.Admin.CommandPanel" layoutTemplatePath="~/Custom/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Notifications/CommandPanel.ascx" />

    The file path and the file exists, i've checked this twice.


    Best regards,
    Marijn Rispens

    Hi Marijn Rispens,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Unfortunately the Newsletters module does not use embedded templates, and therefore the configuration settings in ControlsConfig file will not work. .The problem is that the architecture of this module is a little bit different and it cannot use control templates from a different location than the default one.

    Sincerely yours,
