    I'm using Sitefinity 7.3 and have tried to define an external template for an Events Widget as per the following page: 

    I've restarted Sitefinity and checked the settings over and over however it is still picking up the default template for the Events Widget.

    I'm selecting a SingleEventItem, Current Opened Event Item and the Full event Item template then selecting Advanced -> Control Definition -> Views -> Events Front End List. 

    I'm adding:


    into the TemplatePath

    which is the path of my external template however it is still now found.

    Is there anything else I need to do?

    Hello Paul,

    In order to update use external Template for Single Event Item, you need to set the TemplatePath of "EventsFrontendEdit".

    Here is a short video demonstration how it works.
