A few questions about post templates (2 posts)

    Hi, I'm new to wordpress and, by virtue, custom theming. All the same, I'm giving it my best shot. I'm sure this won't be the last set of questions I'll have, but for now I just have a few I would really appreciate some help with.

    Firstly, here's what I have so far: http://pcpotential.awardspace.com -- as you can see, for the news area, I have a sort of table set up as a sample of how I want each news item to post. Below that is an actual test post. My main question is: how can I set my post template so it will generate one of those table set-ups I have for each, and put itself inside it?

    My other question is: is it possible to assign a image to child categories (you can see I have an icon set aside specifically for MOVIE news, and I have one for other sections to. Can I set it so that all posts in the MOVIE subcategory come along with that image in it's respective spot in the overall table?

    Thanks a lot -- sorry if this has been covered, I'm sure it has. I have a hard time grasping all the 'Loop' info and all the stuff like that, so bear with me.

    You will need to make a sample post for each of your categories with the table and the picture, save it as a private post, make a template out of it.

    Then you can use the appropriate template for the news depending on the type of the news.
