How to create two levels of templates? (7 posts)

    I have dabbled and put together a word press template for my students to learn a subject. the subject has various links on the left such as those needed for learning a topic. For example syllabus, videos, audios, additional links.

    I now realise that i should have a higher level for all subjects and these templates i have now should only come after a topic in a subject is selected.

    how can i do this?
    thanks,

    You can only have 1 theme at a time on a site. Are you perhaps referring to a nested menu with sub-items?. If so, why not create a custom menu?

    Well, my need is this:

    List of modules students can do, all listed in a list control on the home page. Students should be able to search for a module by its ID and get into that module.

    Although every module will look the same with its templates, the part before a student gets into a module will be very different and this is what I mean by two levels.

    Please suggest a solution,
    Thanks,

    You will need to modify your theme's CSS to provide a different "look" on the relevant page.

    Can you please give me an example? What can I call the other pages, and how will they integrate into the wordpress site? What changes will I need to make to the CSS?

    Please help.

    Try creating a custom page template for your main listing page. As to what CSS you will need to change, that will depend upon what changes you want and your current theme's CSS. I'd recommend using Firefox with the Firebug add-on for this kind of CSS work.
