Custom Page Template not showing up in Page Options

Recommended Posts

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).

      Hi,
       
      I created a custom post type for books. And I use the Advanced Custom Fields plugin (and its Flexible Content Field add-on) created many meta boxes for this custom type. How can I create page template to display all the meta boxes? 
       
      I checked the single.php file in DMS, but there is nothing there. Can I just create a single-books.php in my child theme? What should I put in the this file? 
       
      Thank you very much for the help.

      I'd like to create a custom page template that removes all of the content and allows me to just display comments on that page, I'd also like to modify what the comment text says, so instead of 'leave a reply' i'd like "leave a testimonial' etc. I've created a custom page type in my child theme however all that is in there is. setup_pagelines_template(); Where and how do i access what I need in order to modify what content shows?
