I have a feeling this is something simple that I'm over looking, but I can't get WordPress to "see" the custom page template I created. If I understand the process correctly I just need to add the following to the top of the template file (customTemplate.php for example):
<?php /* Template Name: customTemplate */ ?>
Once that's done I should be able to select the custom template when I create a new page. Problem is that my template has that code in it but no option to select it when I create the page I want to apply it to. I'm using WP 3.04... am I missing a step somewhere? I used the same technique on a previous theme under an earlier version of WP and didn't have any problems.
