How do you assign custom template for Posts page (under Front page displays setting)?

Settings > Reading in backend. I notice once I set Posts page to specific page, the Template dropdown on edit page disappears. Also tried page-blog.php but did not work.

I recommend bookmarking this Image from Wordpres Codex Template Hierarchy

As you can see on it Blogs page uses home.php as template while front page is using front-page.php.

  • Thank you for the quick answer and recommendation. Yes, I really need that page bookmarked ;)
