Simple Category Theming

    It would be pretty cool to be able to SIMPLY select a different theme for different categories. I know this can be done fairly easily with some code or plugins, but being able to do it from the admin would be a fantastic feature.

    Maybe it could be done by extending the template header to include a theme name, and then extend categories to use templates:

    I think this would get far too confusing for new users that don't really understand what it's for. Trying to explain to them how you'd style these, etc. would just be a pain.

    This kind of thing is really pretty easy to accomplish by editing your theme, so I don't think it should be in the core functionality.

    i'm having a hard time imagining a UI for this that isn't confusing. i think it would be easier to either include the sandbox theme (which applies category names as body classes), or to just include that function in wordpress.

    Maybe they should just allow to change templates in posts as well as pages?
