I am a new user to Silverstripe.
I am walking through the tutorial.
I am at the section "Using a different template for the home page"
I have followed the code example to create a new template for my homepage and have tried to flush the database and the CMS so the "Page type" drop down list box on the "behaviour" tab will show my new template.
After repeated tries to flush both the database and CMS (which seem to do the flush) the new template doesn't show up in the drop down list box.

It seems as though I am not the first to have this problem so is there another way to create a template?

Did you also create a new page type (ie, a new php file that lives in your /code/ directory) to use the template?

If SilverStripe is not 'finding' your PHP class then make sure its in the correct folder. It should be in 'mysite/code' or if you have /and are using a folder called tutorial then it should be in 'tutorial/code'
