I have a page with the path /about that I would like to have a different page layout from the rest of the site.

I have created page.html.twig as my general page template, and page--about.html.twig as the template for this specific page. Both files are in the /templates directory of my theme. However, only the general template is getting used.

Yes, I have cleared the cache.

Appreciate any help!

You don't say if /about is a different content type or just a node.

If it's a node, you need to use the format:


Replace 1 with the about page node id. See the d.o. page for reference info.

If you are trying to have a template for an about content type. You need to add code to your theme like this:

function THEME_NAME_theme_suggestions_page_alter(array &$suggestions, array $variables) {
  // Add content type suggestions.
  if ($node = \Drupal::request()->attributes->get('node')) {
    array_splice($suggestions, 1, 0, 'page__node__' . $node->getType());

See this d.o page for more info.
