I uploaded a custom page template to my FTP and and wasn???t not showing up in the WordPress admin. So I double and triple checked to make sure my Template tags were all cool, and they were. Normally, a drop down that lets me choose which page template I want to use will show up, but for some reason: no dice.
What seemed to fix the problem was the following:
- Activate a different theme (I just activated the default)
- Reactivate your desired theme
- Go to Manage > Pages
- And you should now see the Page Template
This fixed it for me too.
