Fix the Wordpress Missing Page Template Bug

Sometimes the “Page Template” field disappears when you are trying to update the page template of your WordPress pages. This usually happens after you have upgraded your WordPress to a newer version.

Here’s how you can fix the missing page template…

Step 1: Activate Another WordPress Theme

I am using my own custom WordPress theme so I activated the default WordPress theme as an example.

Step 2: Re-Activate Your WordPress Theme

Activate the WordPress theme you were using when this bug occurred.

Step 3: Reload Your Edit WordPress Page

You should see the “Page Template” field back in the “Advanced Options” when you edit your pages. I don’t know why this happens nor do I know how to permanently fix it. This is just what I do to fix it as and when it happens.
