    I've mapped to external templates for the admin side, but can't seem to do it on the public facing part of the site.   I suspect I am missing something simple.    Config file below...

        <!--Inserts an event item--> 
        <viewSettings hostType="Telerik.Events.WebControls.Admin.EventsItemNew" layoutTemplatePath="~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Events/EventsItemNew.ascx" /> 
        <!--Edits an event item--> 
        <viewSettings hostType="Telerik.Events.WebControls.Admin.EventsItemEdit" layoutTemplatePath="~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Events/EventsItemEdit.ascx" /> 
        <viewSettings hostType="Telerik.Events.WebControls.EventsView"
            <add key="ItemListTemplatePath" layoutTemplatePath="~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/Events/ContentViewItemView.ascx" /> 
            <add key="SingleItemTemplatePath" layoutTemplatePath="~/Sitefinity/ControlTemplates/Events/ContentViewSingleItemView.ascx" /> 

    I then drug the events control on the the page when I was editing it.   I've made changes to both files, but I'm not seeing them online.   I've restarted the App after every change to the config file, and even sometimes when changing the .ascx file (I know not needed)  I suspect I'm missing something simple.

    Assistance is appreciated.
