I've made WP into a cms and there's a few niggling things that cause confusion. The main one is that when you create a page, you have to first select a template then enter a title then save as draft for it to show the correct fields on the page (I'm using the advanced custom field plugin).
Is there any way to get around this? A couple of users have now said "why aren't I seeing the correct fields to fill in?", this is down to not selecting the template and saving first.
