plugin to connect a theme to category or author? (4 posts)

    On my blog I will have around 10 different authors. For each author I will create a seperate category. What I want is to make a seperate template (or at least a header) for each author/category.

    Does anyone know if there's already a plugin that does this?
    I just want to be sure before i start programming myself....

    You can try this.

    within the header.php, you could say,

    <div id="header" <?php if(is_category()) { echo 'class="';the_category(' ');echo '"'} ?>

    that will add a class="apple" or class="orange", in case "apple" and "orange" or the author names.

    then in the style.css, you go ahead and add
    .apple {
    font-size:2em;
    }
    .orange {
    background:#ccc;
    }

    or something you want.

    This is just a rough idea. you need to evolve on this.
    Hope it helps.
