I have activated the child theme (thanks for making that easy!) and am now trying to load a page template for use with some of the fixed pages I have set up on the menu. Per instructions you provided elsewhere on this forum, I created a ‘page-templates’ folder in the child theme directory and placed the new php file in the folder but the template name doesn’t show up as an option when I create or edit a new page. Out of curiosity I also placed the template file in the Seasonal Pro theme folder (instead of the child theme) and that didn’t work either.
Yup, have done that but still not working – I copied your text above into the file and used “Test” as the name but I still only see just two options in the template field when setting up a new page: Default Template and Template Centered.
To be clear, my file structure is >seasonalalpro-child > page-templates > template-test.php
I am now using the Content Views plugin to handle some of the functionality I wanted from the template and it’s working nicely but I would like to figure out how to get custom page templates working for future use.
