Template files generate the web pages on your WordPress site. Different kinds of pages can have different templates. For example, a page for viewing a single post usually has a different template than a page for viewing an archive of posts.
In our ten-minute Coffee Break Course, Understanding the WordPress Theme Template Hierarchy, Envato Tuts+ instructor Rachel McCollin will teach you how WordPress theme template files work and how WordPress selects a file from your theme folder when displaying pages of your site. Follow along to learn about the template hierarchy and how it connects to different content types.
