If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
Hello, I am trying to create a custom page templates based off the loop-page-mini.php. I have found in register-admin-metabox.php where I register the option so it shows up on the edit page -> layout selection drop down. However I cannot seem to make that page show up properly.
i think I am missing tweaking something somewhere so it grabs the new template an reads it. I thought it might be with page.php as that file has reference to mini, but I cannot seem to make it work.
please advise what needs to be done in order for this to work.
i just want to duplicate the Page Mini layout with some variations. Is there a way to do this?
suppose I could “if page” the default if nothing else?
Personally, instead of worrying about editing register-admin-metabox.php I would save page.php as a page-nameofmytemplate.php then on line 2 add the template name like this.
/* Template Name: New Template */
After that I would edit the template as needed. For example, replacing the code from lines 31 – 58 with the code found in includes/loop-page-mini.php.
Once you’ve uploaded the new template, go to the page then on the right in the Page Attributes box select your new template from the drop down option under Template.
