Steps to reproduce

I activated core plugin: Templates. Created a folder with two templates. Clicked on ‘Insert template’ – nothing at all happens

I expected a list with my two templates to pop-up.

Actual result

Nothing happens.

Additional information

works for me.

Can you show a screenshot (or list) your Templates settings? In the first “Template folder location”, it has to be correctly typed, so it is best to let the auto-completion finish typing it. For example, don’t put a / at the beginning of the path.

Does your template have a unique name? Maybe it can’t find it.

Is there any fancy syntax in your template? Have you tested with some basic text just to make sure it isn’t a syntax error?

If you open up the developer console, do you spot any errors?

Didn’t realize there was a separate option for Plugins. It now works as expected after I set the template folder location. Thanks!
