Creating a custom template


I am trying to create a custom template for my website. I created a new template file, and it can be selected as template in the page edit admin page under 'page attributes', but when I save it, it gives me an error:

Updating failed. Error message: Invalid parameter(s): template

I tried to use a custom template created in a plugin, a child theme and even in the main theme, but it all gives me the same error. When I select a default BeTheme template, for example under construction, it saves correctly.  

How can I use custom templates?

  • Hi Pablo,

    Thank you for your reply. My information:

    PHP Version 7.0.33
    define('MFN_THEME_VERSION', '21.5.5');

    Even with all the plugins disabled the same error occurs: Updating failed. Error message: Invalid parameter(s): template

    Changing the template value in the wp_postmeta for the key _wp_page_template to the child theme template, I still don't get that template active for the page. The dropdown 'Page Attributes > Template' had the child theme template selected, but a die('test'); in the child theme page doesn't change anything on the page in the frontend. 

    So the child template doesn't work, even if I set it in the database.
    The child template is a copy of template-blank.php, except for a different Template Name and a die() in the file. 

    Can you tell me how I can activate a child theme template for a page?
