Custom Page Template not showing up in Page Options


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi - 


I've switched over to using the Base Child Theme, after reading about setting up a custom page template here:

 

http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Create_a_Custom_Page_Template

 

However, the template doesn't show up in Page Options for me to configure via Drag-n-Drop. Following along with other forum problems of a similar bent, I tried deactivating all plugins, and my page is called page.home.php (no dashes or extraneous characters), and it still doesn't show up.


I've set debug mode on, if that helps.

 

I am in WP 3.5.1 and using the most current version of the Pagelines Framework.

 

Thanks,
Star

Hi,

 

When you create a custom page template, the template will not be available in Page Options. Page Options is only for Site Defaults and Special Pages.

If you have created a custom page template correctly, the page template will be available in Drag & Drop.

I don't know how many times I read that and misunderstood it. Apologies, and thanks - it's right where you'd suggest it be (and not quite what I thought it was).
