Assign custom templates to posts of particular categories (3 posts)

    I have been a Movable Type user for a while now and thought I would check out WordPress, and I must say I love it.

    My site conversion has been going well up to now.

    What I can't figure out is how to tell all posts of a particular category to display using the same custom template? And I have more than one category which I would like to assign a custom template.

    Anyone have any suggestions or can point me in the right direction?

    I have checked out the online doc and found the topic which shows how to assign templates to category pages using the 'category-2.php' naming method, but not to the posts themselves.

    WP doesn't do that out of the box. Try to use this plugin:

    Ah, sweeeet!!!
    I didn't even think about checking out the plugins.

    Did I mention how much I'm loving the software, 8^)
    It's a refreshing change from MT.
