I created a page template, uploaded it, but then changed the template name later.

Template Name: New Name

Now, the new template name is showing up on the Page dropdown, but so is the old template name. How can I delete the old one from the list??

1 Answer 1


Just remove the old file from your theme's directory. That list of templates is generated from the files present in your theme, so you probably have two files.
