I thought this would be incredibly simple, but it has not. I have an index.php file that has my default template for my site. I then made a new file called magazine.php for a template file so that I could make a seperate display for my "magazine" page. I wrote at the top of the magazine.php :

Template Name: Magazine

Simple enough. Then i assigned my "magazine" page to the "magazine" template in the drop down list on the magazine page. I then go to the site to see it and to my utter shock and dismay it simply does not show up. It defaults back to the index.php file... Am i missing something? It should go to the assigned template correct?

    Looks good to me. So the problem may be elsewhere in your code. – cjbj Jun 7 '16 at 20:46

    does your theme have a page.php? are you using any caching? is the 'magazine' page by any chance your posts page? – Michael Jun 8 '16 at 1:08
