I'm using SS.2.4.

I want an action called new. But since that is a reservered word I can't make a function called new(). So I've made a url_handler to handle that

public static $url_handlers = array(
        'new' => 'customnew'

My template is called: - and in order to have a specific template for this action I have tried making and
When accessing the url /Mypage/new none of the templates gets loaded. The only way I can load an action specific template is by calling /Mypage/customnew.

Anyone knows how to fix this? I suppose I could render the page with a specific template, but thats not preferable.

To use a template that doesn't match your ClassName you will need to load your template:

class MyPage_controller extends Page_Controller {
    function customnew() {
        $data = DataObject::get('CustomNew'); 
        return $this->customise($data)->renderWith(array('customnew','Page'));
