Page Template Thumbnails


This plugin creates a thumbnail list of the available page templates.

Clicking a thumbnail updates the Page Attributes -> Templates drop down to the corresponding page template.

  1. Upload page-template-thumbnails directory to the wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Take screen shots of each page template in use.
  4. Name each thumbnail file the same as how it appears in the Page Attributes -> Templates drop down. Replace spaces with the underscore for legacy compatability (ex: Full Page Template = Full_Page_Template.png). This is how the plugin knows which thumbnail is associated with each page template.
  5. Save the thumbnails to a directory on your site (ex: wp-content/gallery/page_templates/).
  6. Navigate to: Wp-admin -> Settings -> Page Template Thumbs and set the options for the plugin. Be sure to set the Thumbnail Path to the directory where you saved your thumbnails.
