Ideally you don't want to hack the core...

as I say, if you are trying to add this functionality to all Page Controllers then you could define it in the Page.php in the Page_Controller.
My example is is more if you are using a custom controller and routing (i.e. not a Page on the Site Tree).

Page_Controller inherits from ContentController.

Hi both,

Wouldn't it make more sense to add the code that sets the template name in an extension of controller (or content controller).

That way the template will be available globally?
