You are owner of the store? If not, maybe you don't have permission to add template.

You may be using an older theme that doesn't take advantage of the Shopify 2.0 updates. Specifically json page templates.
.json template files will have a different icon next to the name.


If you are comfortable editing the codebase you can make the updates yourself. Otherwise I recommend getting help from a professional.
Alternatively you could install a newer theme (e.g.: Dawn) which uses JSON templates by default and start again.

In the code editor, create a new page template (in the 'templates' folder) and call it "page.json" or something similar.

Add the following code:

  "sections": {
    "main": {
      "type": "main-page"
  "order": [

The "type": "main-page" references a .liquid file in your "sections" folder.
If there is no main-page.liquid file you will need to create it, or change this reference to another exisiting file/section.

If there are any issues with the above, the editor should indicate what the problem is.
