You couldn't choose templates for posts anyway. Templates for pages can be selected from the Attributes panel. If you can't see that panel, check Screen Options on the Add Post page and ensure that it's enabled.

Need a bit more info.

Do you see the Template selection box? If so, Does the option not stick?

Have you tried with all plugins disabled, And the default theme? (Assuming it has some templates)

(Note, That templates work correctly for me, I'm using them now, So i'm tempted to reclose as worksforme unless you've got alternate source)

I use the default theme with only one extension (akismet).

I don't see the Template selection box

I use 5 templates, because before i have created 5 templates under wp 2.6.5 (my installation is an upgrade 2.6.5 > 2.7)

Is this in a specific browser?

My 2.6.5 -> 2.7 test site is showing the template select just fine from the default theme. Of course if you have a non-stock theme with more templates it could be something about the particular templates that is causing them not to show.

Do your Page templates have the comment in


Template Name: Archives

For their name?

absolutely, and all of my templates works good on wp 2.6.5

I have seen something like this a couple of times but have been unable to reproduce it in order to track down. The solution for me was to switch to another theme and switch back to the current theme.

#12 @mrmist

The code that generates this has not changed a lot, looks like it was just code cleaning in theme.php since 2.6.5. You could always try swapping out the code in get_page_templates for the 2.6.5 copy.
