I am using a theme that has additional templates available for such things as pages, comments, etc. My problem is that when I go in to edit or create a new WP page and try and select a template that I want that page to use, it only shows Archives and Links available, no others. Those template files have been uploaded and are in the themes folder. I have read a lot of docs at WordPress.org. When I go to Appearance, then Editor, I'm not able to make changes and save them. I don't typically make file changes this was, usually with Dreamweaver, but at the bottom of the page it refers to Codex, which I clicked the link. I read through all the codex info, made changes to permissions, which I since returned to the default permissions. After making the changes to permissions, I was able to make changes to the template files and save them, but when I went back to edit/create pages, still only Archives and Links showed for available templates.
Sorry if I'm rambling. Can anyone tell me how to make the additional template files available? Thank you for any and all assistance.
