I understand that WP looks at the theme’s directory to determine if there are any template php files that must be used before it reverts to the default single.php, loop.php, sample.php etc pages.
My basic question question is: Do I create a “hello-there” WP Page in the dashboard and then–if I want to totally customize how this page appears/behaves–I create and manually upload a “hello-there.php” file into my theme directory?
I had done this with success, but just in the last day I’ve noticed that WP is reverting to the default file (and the Page content in the Dashboard) instead of looking at the php file I have in th theme directory.
(Not sure if this could have anything to do with having made a minor change to my permalink structure, but could it be related?)
