Change Themes with Categories (3 posts)

    I know I have read about this someplace else, but I cannot find it now.

    I would like to be able to completely change the theme when a person chooses a category.

    Example: If someone chooses the "Books" category, I would like it to change to "Blue Radiant" Theme, or if they chose "Movies", it would switch to the "Archway" them.

    This would allow me to have a different look and layout for each category.

    Any help?

    Don't know of a way currently to do this. Probably your best option is to code up different layouts for each category through the use of individual category templates, as mentioned here:

    And for posts within a category, see my plugin:
