What are page templates

Page templates by its name are simple templates displayed in a different layout for a certain post. for example if you want to create a blog page to display all your blog posts then you need to create a page template, if you want to create a page that will display a gallery of portfolio then you need to create a page template. Joolu’s theme has different kinds of page template, layouts and functionality varies depending on what kind of theme it is some have 5 kinds of page templates some even has 10 page templates and some have none.

In this example lets create a simple page template that will display all your blog posts in a single page( make sure you have created all necessary blog posts first before creating a page template otherwise it will now show anything. ) in your wp admin dashboard go to pages and add a new page. scroll down a little bit and you will find a small box called Page Attributes, select the page template you want since we’re creating a blog page choose the one you see in the screen shot below.

once done click save/publish and you are done. this conclude the tutorial on the basics of page templates.
