Summary of this tutorial:

Tools mentioned in this video:

Sublime Text:


Start by creating a blank file and add the text from our video or copy it from our written article and save it with the .php extension.

Then connect to your hosting provider using FTP and go to your site’s wp-content/themes directory to find your theme’s folder, open it, and upload your new file into your theme’s folder.

This will allow you to use the template when you create a new page on your site even if the template does not show anything at the moment.

For displaying your content the simplest method for starting would be to copy your current theme’s page.php’s content and pasting it into your new template. #WordPress #WordPressTutorial #WordPressTips

    How does it know to appear in the page tab in WordPress I mean they are all php files in the file, I assume it must say something in the code to signify it’s a page template, can you direct me to which part ?

    This is driving me nuts. I've done everything correctly up to 1:41, as far as I can tell, but that custom template doesn't show up for me when I try adding a new page. Is anyone else running into this problem?

  • Paige Knight on April 9, 2019

    Thank you this was very helpful. Although, I'm wanting to create a custom page without the menu option because it's going to be used for our ppc landing pages. I haven't been able to find a way to take the content from the page.php and eliminate the header and footer content and make them custom page show my content. Any advice?

  • Dean Games on April 17, 2019

    Can you add custom code on the page for instance a custom search bar with filters?

    Hi there, I'm really new to WordPress and coding (basically everything). Was just wondering if for the text editor I can use the TextEdit application on a mac? Also I've downloaded Filezilla but I don't know how to use it at all. How did you load in all of the WordPress site info? Would really appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction. Thanks!

  • Daniel Botoc on May 18, 2020

    That will work if you don't have advanced customization, therefore not using a child theme. What about when changing/adding php customization for a specific ID page that came with the Theme without changing the functionality of the entire site.

  • R T on May 20, 2020

    Yep, this is a little gem 😉

  • Yasir Khan on June 5, 2020

    beautiful….easy and useful….

  • Grzegorz Latocha on June 28, 2020

    That's good first step. But I would like to be able to create fully custom page adding my js and css to it. Still not quite clear how to proceed, but at least I know some startpoint

    OMG, thanksss

  • Dale Smith on September 3, 2020

    This is a fantastic concise instruction. But many themes do not have "attribute" so you cannot select a template What do you do then?

  • Mathias Knudsen on September 15, 2020

    I dont have current theme 2017 or 2020 or whatever ? what do you mean by current theme

  • Canal do Khal on January 1, 2021
