Custom Category Template
[resolved] how does this work? (3 posts)

    Hi,
    i've installed this on a couple of different wordpress installs, running wp 3.2.1 and wp 3.3.1.
    The pictured "pulldown" menu does not appear on the Categories page, and there appears to be no settings/options page.

    Is there some code that needs to be added to templates for them to appear?

    thanks

    ok, I found that the select template appears on the edit category page, and it shows templates with the "Template Name:" code at the top.

    This is confusing as it means that both page AND category templates appear in the menu.

    I am now using this plugin

    with this one, the pulldown appears in both 'new' and 'edit' category.
    It also uses a different code at the top of the template so that only Category Templates appear.

    Sorry for the late reply, i see what you mean about the add new field and i've added the same to this plugin which I'll update shortly, as for the custom template tag on the template file, its missing the whole point which made me code this plugin and that is share the same template across pages and categories.
