Create Wordpress page template

When creating a new page in Wordpress, we usually have a choice for the page template. It's call Default template. However, we sometimes need to make a new page with a new appearance. Then another page template is needed. Instead of downloading a shared page template from internet, we can create a new page template by below instructions.

  • Create template file: 

    • Go to your website file manager and open your current theme directory: /wp-content/themes/your_current_theme_name/

    • Create a new file like your_new_template.php contains below codes with Your new template is your new template name:

Template Name: Your new template

  • Before building contents for new template, you should know the template tags. They will be used to display your template contents dynamically. Some common template tags are:

    • get_header():  display header part by including header.php file from your current theme directory;

    • the_content(): display the contents of current page;

    • get_sidebar(): display siderbar part by including sidebar.php file from your current theme directory;

    • get_footer(): display footer part by including footer.php file from your current theme directory;

    • And more tags at Wordpress Codex.

  • Coding template contents: using the template tags, we can simply build the template contents. We have an example for full width layout template here.

[html]<php get_header(); ?>
<div id="content" class="content">
<div class="post">
<div class="entrytext">
<?php the_content(); ?>
<?php get_footer(); ?>[/html]

That's all. After creating new template, you can now use it for new appearance page.
