I am a beginner wordpress user, and I am trying to install a plugin called "Events List" which required me to create a custom template called events.php according to these instructions
I followed the instructions and uploaded the events.php template file into my themes folder.
When I try to add this template on to my "Events" page it is not showing up under the template drop-down. All that is showing up is "Default Template"
I did some research and found this in the WordPress Codex
"Note: Sometimes it is necessary to switch to the WordPress Default Theme, then back to your theme, for the Template choices to appear!"
I am wondering if it is safe to switch between themes quickly without losing and customization or anything else in the process. My website is built and launched so I dont want to mess everything up.
Thanks for your time,
