Different Theme for Different User/Categories Display (5 posts)

    Is it possible to select a different theme for every different user?

    also...

    Is there a way to view only a certain category from only an individual user?

    I'm a new user and I'd appreciate all the guidance I can get. :-)

    1. You mean you want to select for them or they should select it?

    2. I am not sure I understand this one. You want a category to be visible to only 1 user?

    For new users it is always useful to take a look at the zillions of good articles on the Codex the official documentation site.
    I'd recommend: http://codex.wordpress.org/Getting_Started_with_WordPress
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Working_with_WordPress
    and later you'll find the rest :)

    I mean, that there would be a URL that only displays the postings in one category from ONLY one specific user.

    In regards to theme...it doesn't matter who selects it. I just want the layout/formatting for one user to be different than that of another user.

    Thank you.

    Oh, I am slow today, or just need some sleep :)
    By "user" you mean an author, right? You can list the posts of one single author (check out the Template Tags section and Pages in the Codex), but I am not sure it can be done to show only his/her posts from a certain category.
    Still confused about the theme question. Do you mean to display the posts of an author with a different theme and the posts of another author with another theme?

    Yes you are exactly correct - but this is assuming you are viewing a page with ONLY the postings from THAT user. Not a page that has multiple users.

    You seem to be pretty experienced in th is...is there a way I could contact you for more rapid communication..I have a greater scheme in mind that, if you kindly permit me, I'd like to share with you.

    Thanks.
