This is a page that uses my tmp_product.htm - which is displays fine:

When you click the hoodie - you are supposed to go to a page that uses a template file called closeup.html as a template - these files are unmodified from 4.5 and are working fine on my live 4.5 site.

After clicking the hoodie - the url changes to include &template=closeup.html - but you remain on the original page, closeup.html is not being used

In my product's table I have this .. Extended description page: closeup.html

is there something new in 5.0 that I am missing

support got back to me on this one

The template file needs the .htm file extension instead of .html.

This check is performed for security reasons so that hackers cannot read non html files on your system.

I changed all my template files to htm 's and all the link referancees to htm 's and it works now :)

I would have never thought of that

blimey; how obscure; that would have had me stumped for ages.
Many thanks for posting that reply; it's definitely something that I'll now watch out for.
