I followed the steps in this cumulus tutorial, all is running fine and smooth, but I can't find the template-pallet or any other pallet I try to add in the parachain.

  • Is it normal ?

I've read that:

You cannot, at this time, connect a parachain with any previous state to a relay chain.

  • So maybe I have to live-upgrade the parachain to include the new pallets ?

  • What are the steps to include custom logic in a parachain ?

    Are you sure you have pointed the polkadot-js ui at the parachain port rather than the relay chain? 8844 would be the port if you're following this guide: docs.substrate.io/tutorials/v3/cumulus/connect-parachain

This was answered by Squirrel - they weren't showing up because Polkadot-JS was pointing at the relay chain, not the parachain.
