template drop down no show in 2.7 (4 posts)

    This is a BUG: see string here in troubleshooting:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/232199?replies=11#post-952399

    gist of this string: After installing a theme and activating it, the templates drop down menu to assign a template to a new page, does not appear in the admin control panel for add new page. In order to get the drop down for assigning templates to show up, one has to

    activate the default WordPress theme and then switch back to the one under construction.

    thanks,
    JSC

    So you are saying the work-around solution, changing to the WordPress Default Theme then changing back, worked for you?

    Reporting Bugs might be worth following. Problem with this bug is duplicating the problem!

    I encountered the same problem with WordPress 2.7 - no page template dropdown options other than the default (in both the add new page window and in the Quick Edit window) - and this fixed the problem for me, too.

    It's worth noting that there are other problems with the 2.7 interface like this that I have solved by doing the same: switch to default theme and then back to your new theme. I can't recall what the problem was exactly, but I know I solved it this way. Since it's easy and quick, it's always a good thing to try first.

    Quick feedback, as I left on another post.

    I had the same problem, but it's not a bug according to the docs here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates .

    If you read it carefully, it says...

    Note: when creating or editing a Page, the Page Template option does not appear unless there is at least one template defined in the above manner.

    So, it only displays the template dropdown if you have something other than the default. Drop an example empty template into your theme directory, and the dropdown will appear.
