Maybe it's just the site I'm running but has the 3.2 update removed the ability to select a page template in the page attributes when adding a new page?

It's kinda essential unless anyone knows a way around it?

  • no. the page attributes and page template both options are in there places. check your screen options on the top right corner. – Hameedullah Khan Jul 5 '11 at 10:05
  • Page attributes is ticked but the box just doesn't have a templates drop down. – Rob Jul 5 '11 at 10:08
  • What Theme are you using? Does your current Theme have custom Page templates from which to choose? – Chip Bennett Jul 5 '11 at 11:08
  • I'm using the default theme, yes I've got some custom templates in there. They work perfectly fine on a 3.1 install. – Rob Jul 5 '11 at 12:09
  • Sounds like a personal problem. Does the Quick Edit show the templates dropdown normally too? – Otto Jul 5 '11 at 17:36

Make sure you don't leave any space after "template name" and full column.

Right

<?php
/*
Template Name: About
*/
?>

Wrong

<?php
/*
Template Name : About
*/
?>

It seems as though it was a personal problem. A knew install solved the problem so it must've been clashing with some legacy data.

I had the same problem here.

Try to activate the Twenty Eleven theme e reactivate your actual theme. It works for me.

I solved the problem creating the correct header in the style.css of my custom theme

/*
Theme Name:
Theme URI:
Description:
Author:
Author URI:
*/

    Why would creating a header in your stylesheet effect whether or not theme templates are available? Are you sure you are addressing the question with this answer? – s_ha_dum Apr 11 '13 at 22:29
