Dear Sir/Madam,

Refer to screenshot from View, Content Template "Loop item in Program Chapter Horizontal List - Home" was the previous template used in this View. I don't need it anymore, I assigned another content template "Loop item in Column Horizontal List - Home" but I could not able to remove the previous one.

From the Content Template list, there is no checkbox for me to select and un-assign it.

I confirm all my Toolset plugins are the most up-to-date.

Best regards,

Kelvin.

That content template will be removed from that list once you fully delete the related View which is currently Trashed.

You can fully remove the View in Views > Views > Trash.

Loop Item content templates are automatically deleted when you run the Loop wizard again and uncheck the checkbox "Use a Content Template to group the fields in this View loop".

Those only disappear / delete after you delete the related View fully.

Dear Minesh,

Yes, I can delete the template if I delete the associated View, what if I want to change the template rather then remove the View? I want to have different template for my client review.

Best regards,

Kelvin.

You can try to detach existing content template when you try to run the wizard again and uncheck the checkbox "Use a Content Template to group the fields in this View loop" on wizard's second step.

Then try to attach a new content template.

Please be aware that detaching a template means an automatically deletion of it. It would be nice to have the option of detaching a content template without having to lose everything. I re-run the wizard as Minesh suggested and the next thing I knew is that my content template was gone and nowhere to be found.
