I created a view and was able to figure out how to use Loop Wizard and edit view template. What I don't understand is: Each time I re-edit the fields using Loop Wizard, the view template was reset to default. This is frustrating as I have to edit the template all over again. Is this behavior by design, or am I missing something?

Thank you for contacting us here in the Support Forum

If you use the Loop Wizard, The View loop will be overwritten by this wizard.
If you want to add fields and keep your HTML edits, use the Fields and Views button.

This means, you would on the first attempt create your Views Layout (Views Loop + Eventual Content template) using the Wizard.

If you afterwards want to make small changes to your Fields, like add a Field, modify a Filed, modify some HTML or similar actions, which should keep your basic Views Output as-is, you would need to use the Button "Fields and Views" instead.

This allows you to edit partial contents of your Views Loop content.

If you use the Loop Wizard again, it will by design overwrite your current Loop content

If this does not describe accurately the issue you mention, can you please elaborate a little more so I can better understand?

Thank you

Ah... Thanks for the quick response! Now I understand why there is the Fields and Views button in the template editor. I'm starting to love this plugin already! Thanks for the great job!
