[TYPO3-english] R: tt_news template selection (box) question

I don't remember exactly, but I think I've always seen the tt_news "copy template" box (I've not used the new version 3 yet). To avoid this...simply put the template path in Typoscript Setup instead of using the plugin interface

plugin.tt_news.templateFile = fileadmin/path/to/your/template/tt_news.html

Hi Phillipp,

I realize I can still update my template. But the problem is the old box makes a copy of it.  I don't want to have to go tracking down copies in places other than my templates folder.  We reuse our templates all the time for new sites.  I'd just rather not make a mess of the whole situation.

And why is it doing this?  Why did it revert?  Seems buggy.

I have a new install of t3 4.2.10 and tt_news 3.0.1 running for a new site.

The new "Template file reference" box is working for that install.

Maybe there's another extension causing the bugginess?

Has no one else seen this happen?
