  • How do I add values or templates to the Template Drop-Down options under Page Attributes.
    I am using the Twenty Eleven theme and I only see three options
    – Default Template
    – Showcase Template and
    – Sidebar Template

    I would like to add a Archives or a custom Template so I can create a page where I can create an index of all the blogs.

  • I had read this article. It does not explain how I can see new templates from a drop down option from a page while using the twenty eleven theme.
    Thanks

    add the following to the top of your page

    <?php
    /*
    Template name: [template name here]
    */
    ?>

    Save the file as a php extension.
    Use an FTP client (Filezilla, FireFTP, etc) to upload your php file to your site’s theme folder. Usually sitename.com > wp-content > themes > themename
    Refresh the WordPress side and the page template should show up in the drop-down list.

    If you create a new page template as explained in the article above and include it in your theme along with the other page templates – it will appear as a template option in Page Attributes.

    U are awesome. Thanks for your help. Can I ask another question?
    How do I now create an index of all blog titles with hyperlinks to the actual blog.
    Example:
    By Month or Category
    June 2012
    – Blog 1 Title
    – Blog 2 Title
    July 2012
    – Blog 1 Title
    – Blog 2 Title

    Clicking on the Blog title will then take the user to the complete blog.

    figure out how you want to index the the blog titles. make each title link to its respective blog. <a href="blogurlgoeshere">Blog Title</a>

    if you need help with basic syntax of html/javascript/css/etc try this site: w3schools.com
