I'm using 1.5, but have created a page that uses mookitty's show-cats plugin for showing only specific categories. I want this page to feature only a handfull of categories and to be essentially cut off from the rest of the categories. The problem is when I want to link to specific categories using this separate template, I need to know the old URI structure so when users click on the category links they stay with the right main php file.
For instance, I use index.php for my main site. When I go to view a single category here's the URI structure:
The problem is, when I link to that from my new main.php page (which will only display certain categories), it uses the index.php page as the base/template/theme/whatever for the page it displays. I am hoping that I can use the old URI structure. The catch there is, I have no recolection what it was. Also, I'm not sure if it still works under 1.5 when I've chosen to use the "nice" looking permalinks.
I have searched the codex, the old wiki and this forum, but can't seem to find anything that directly references the old structure. (that looks something like this: "index.php?categorynumber=521")
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
