Use page templates for custom page layout in WordPress

Categories: Wordpress - Tags: , , ,

Getting custom page layout in WordPress is not so hard, to do so proceed the following way:

  • Check if your template includes a page-custom.php file, if it doesn’t you should create it by duplicating the page.php file.
  • Copy the page-custom.php file, rename it to something relevant (for example: page-contact.php for a contact page with a custom layout).
  • In the very beginning of the template file, add the following code:
    Template Name: Contact
  • Customize your template.
  • In your WordPress admin, under page editing, you should now have a drop-down listing all your pages in the “Template” box.
