I'm working on determining what is causing the following behavior and trying to determine if it's a bug or user error.

I have an event template set up for a recurring monthly event that we host.

I am attempting to set up a new event. During the initial set-up, I select the template that I would like to use for the new event. After setting the event date, etc, I hit the "Continue" button. Upon doing so, instead of creating a new event based on that template, a new template is created. Therefor there is no event created and a duplicate template is created.

I found the same behavior on the WP demo site and the Joomla site was not working in order for me to test it (I am using Joomla).

This behavior did not occur previously but I am not sure which version it started. I am currently using 5.9.0 for Joomla.
