    I have a trial license for Sitefinity 3.7 Standard Edition.  I'm trying to prove out the ability to customize the built-in modules.  Based on the instructions in the User Manual, I logged into my account and clicked the Downloads link to find the External Templates zip file.  However, it is not there.

    Am I doing something wrong?  Please let me know as soon as possible.

    I'm now having a different problem.  Going through the example of trying to modify the create blog post form, I see that the route field in the query string has a value of BlogsControlPanel.PostsView.PostsNewView.  When I open the external templates zip file and go to the \Admin\ControlTemplates\Blogs folder, I don't see this PostNewView.ascx file (I do see a PostNew.ascx file).  Did I download the wrong thing?  Please let me know.

    Hello Bill Barbour,

    PostNew.ascx is the template used when you create a new blog post.
    PostEdit.ascx is the template used when you edit an existing blog post.
