How to add a php page to Wordpress ?

Wordpress Developer India

Many days ago i wanted to create a custom page for my WordPress blog that will execute my php code in it, whilst remaining a part of the overall site css/theme/design. The php code would make use of 3rd party APIs (so I need to include other php files). so i was wondering that how do I accomplish this? i got the solution which is pretty simple.

Even You don't need to interact with the API, or use a plugin.

  • First, duplicate post.php or page.php in your theme folder (under /wp-content/themes/themename/).
  • Rename the new file as templatename.php (where templatename is what you want to call your new template!). Enter the following at the top of the new file:


/* Template Name: templatename */


  • You can modify this file (using php) to include other files or whatever you need.
  • Then create a new page in your wordpress blog, and in the page editing screen you'll see a 'Template' dropdown in the 'Attributes' widget to the right. Select your new template and publish the page.
  • Your new page will use the php code defined in templatename.php

that's it - you'r done !  isn't is so simple ? :)
