I am having problems setting up the feature-page template frontpage that is the static page on my website. The directions for setting this up indicate that you must create a new page and then select the "feature-page" template. I can't find any box to check or button to select for this template.

You choose the feature page as a 'page template' in the right hand side of the page creation area. In fact there are several feature page templates to choose from

I suppose this is the problem that I'm having. When I click on Page > New Page, there is no Page Template selection in the right-hand side of the page creation area or any part of that page. I am running WordPress 2.8.5 and WhiteHousePro theme has been activated. Can you tell me why I can't see the area of the New Page section that you're referring to? I have 2-column view on as well.

sometimes WP doesn't register them correctly. Go to admin > 'appearance' and reactivate the theme... Once you get the templates to show up your problem should be solved.

That wasn't the problem, believe it or not. The issue was with the administrator account that I was using to access WordPress. I had a secondary account with author privileges and, after elevating those privileges to Editor, logging into that account allowed me to see the "Page Templates" section under Attributes on the right-hand side of the Page > Add New page window. Selecting "Feature-Standard" gives me exactly what I need. Thanks, again. Problem resolved.
