I'm not sure which workaround you're referring to, since the link you posted is broken. If you think it may be an issue however, you should revert the changes and go back to the original and try it again.
As for making a copy of the Ordering page and having it work. Would it work for you to make a copy of the Ordering page and modifying it to be what you want for the news page?
I can see that there is a problem occurring when you apply the template and add content, but I haven't been able to reproduce the same issue. Does this happen with the default template that is provided in the PowerStore as well or is it only after changes were made to the template?
