SharePoint Online content type with template opens the template, not a new instance of a page

Copper Contributor

I have created a custom content type and then linked a template to it.
I have then added this content type to a SharePoint Library to allow users to click the 'New' button and then select the new content type.
My issue is that this opens the template, not a new instance of a page using the template.

Does anyone know what I may have done wrong here? This can't be the intended functionality?

It sounds like you are mixing up Document Templates with Page Templates. Page Templates are created in the Site Pages library. If you want to create a template for a page, you need to created if from the Site Pages library.
