I am trying to add a page to my main menu. The menu item associated with the page gets displayed correctly. But when I click on that menu item, I get taken to the main index.php page of the site.
I set a template for the page. I also have a page.php file.
I expected that when I click on that page menu entry, WordPress would try to display that page using the template that I specified. If that didn't work, I would have expected it to use page.php instead.
I have read the following page:
Does anyone have an idea of why my template, or page.php, is not being used to display my page?
