    please don't duplicate posts
    on the edit or add new Pages screen on the right side is a drop down menu for templates
    if done correctly your page template will be there

    @redlinemd,

    I'm getting the same problem. I've created my theme template correctly, but the drop down doesn't show up in the Page Write panel.

    When I switch to the default wp theme, the issue goes away. Switching back does nothing.

    Also, I'm using the WP-Framworks theme as starting point.

    any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT: For some reason the syntax in the WP-Framework files didn't include 'Name' when naming templates. As in:
    /* Template Name: test */

    vs.

    /* Template: test */

    Hope this helps for others.
