Creating pages based on templates - eventually!

All my attempts to use custom templates when creating new DNN pages for my portals were frustrating. Even though I exported the template from a page using the Export feature, the new template would not show up at all in the combo box when creating a new page, although it existed in the file system. Even the default template wouldn't show up!

Here's a simple solution to make those template files appear when you create a new page:

1. Go to Host Settings - Other Settings and locate the "File Upload Extensions" section. Add "template" (without the quotes) there and save your changes.

2. Click "Restart Application" in Host Settings.

3. Go to the File Manager and synchronize files with the "recursive" option set.

4. Optionally, clear the portal's cache in Host Settings (only if it doesn't seem to work differently).

Now you'll have access to your custom templates when creating new pages. Hope that helps.
