    before 3.6.1, when i created a static Page, on the right in Page Attributes, below "Parent" the was an label "Template" with options
    "Default Template" "Front Page Template" "Full-width Page Template, No Sidebar".

    i often used the "Full-width... " but now the entire Template option has been removed in 3.6.1

    is there a way i can set a full width Page now?

    i don't see a hit in google/bing talking about this removal!

    thank you!

    No - it has not been removed but it will only be displayed if your current theme has at least one custom page template.

    hi esmi,

    i only use the theme that comes with WP install. Twenty Twelve theme i never did anything special and there always was the Template options drop down. now with my new WP install 3.6.1 has Twenty Thirteen theme, i'm creating a Page and there's no Template options drop down.

    i searched on your words "custom page template" found
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Page_Templates#Creating_a_Page_Template
    i've never modified/uploaded code to WP. i am a good basic user that just clicks on options that WP gives me in the back end.

    so it seems 2012 came with custom page templates and now 2013 does not? because i never created anything but Pages in previous WP installs.

    thank you for answering!

    ps. i love WP and think i do pretty good for a beginner

    That's because the 2013 theme does not incorporate any custom page templates.
