Category Template Hierarchy
[resolved] Categories as Pages (4 posts)

    I want each Category to appear only on it's own page. I had hoped this plug-in would allow that but if it does there is not enough information as to how to accomplish this.
    Do I have the right plug-in? If so how do I accomplish my goal? If not, is there another plug-in that will help me do the job?

    I guess im not sure what you are asking for. You'll need to be more specific about what you need.

    Each of the category template types allows developers to either specify an ID or slug, or neither. If you specify a slug or ID, the template will apply to that category specified (or it's child depending on if the template name starts with 'child-of'). If the developer does not specify a slug or ID, then it will be applied to any category/child category that is viewed.

    If you mean to say that you want a 'page' post type to represent one of your categories, well thats not what this plugin does - 'page' post types don't get routed to category templates - if this is what your asking about - you should study the default template hierarchy to see how standard page and category template hierarchies work.

    If you are not a developer then this plugin, generally speaking, is not for you - unless your theme requires it. Your theme would require this plugin only if the developer of your theme used this plugin in his development of it.

    Eddie, but isn't there a way for a non-developer to use this? I'm not a software engineer, but I know how to monkey around with code and if you give us instructions, I'm sure myself and others like me can do it.

    There is a real need out there for something like this. I'm surprised there isn't a simple solution yet.

    The original question posted in this thread was unclear and not very specific. What specific feature/functionality are you looking for?
