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 :
<?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?
