Changing page templates in WordPress pages

Depending on the theme you are using, you may have different page templates available for each page.

To select the page template you need, in the page editor’s right column you can select the template you want to use, under Templates box.

Depending on the theme you are using, some common templates are:

  • Default template. Generally is a page with sidebar.
  • Full Width template. A full width page with no sidebar.
  • Home page template. Depending on the theme a special layout you can use for your home page.
  • Portfolio template. If the theme supports portfolios, this template will display your portfolio layout.
  • Team template. A page that displays your team members.
  • Gallery. A page that displays an image gallery in a unique way.

After you assign a new page template, you can include the page to a menu. Learn how to configure your menus →
