Testing new page templates?

Postby gourmetdelights » Fri Oct 11, 2019 2:05 pm

I THOUGHT, incorrectly it appears, that I could test out some new templates on my website simply by copying an existing page, thus creating a new page not linked to other pages, and then use

List of Pages >> Edit Page Layout >> Page Template

alas when I do that the pages look nothing like any of the template themes
https://www.shopsite.com/templates/cookbook/builtintemplates.shtml

For example: Edgewise

Template Cookbook> Built In Themes> Boot Two Templates> Edgewise Theme

So I could change my page template to Boot-Two.sst to see how it looks.

Alas that is not the case. There must be a difference between "Templates" and "Themes" I'm misunderstanding.

So is there any easy way to "test drive" some page templates/themes?

Thank you.
