I have the following component template:
So a News component can be published, it doesn't need to be on a page, exactly the behavior I want.
I also like to have the the possibility to add a component link to a news component on a landing page, to show it as a highlighted item. So I have a component in which I can add component links to news components, I add that component on a page (the component template has the configuration to publish it embedded on a page).
The interesting (and annoying) part is that when I publish a news component which is also added as highlighted item a landing page, ALL news components are published.
When I publish a news component which is not added as highlighted item, then only that component is published.
I see this as a bug, or am I missing something?
