I have created two custom post types for my website called, "art" and "design"
I have additionally created a series of custom taxonomies called, "color", "media", "project", ect. Both post types share these taxonomies.
All of this works great. The issue I am having is that throughout my site I am using colors in my header to let the user know where they are. For example, When they are viewing the art-archive.php page everything is yellow. When they are on the design-archive.php page everything is orange. I was able to do this with the single posts as well.
The problem is with the taxonomy.php page. Since they both use this template I can't change the colors with way I did with the "art-archive.php" template. I tried making a art-taxonomy.php page but that didn't work.
I know I could go in and build mirror taxonomies for each post-type and then create separate taxonomy-color.php files, but that seems like a lot of work, and difficult to maintain in the future if I want to add more taxonomies.
Is there anyway to have a single, or maybe 2 taxonomy pages that keep my post-types separate while having independant style? SO that I could query "color" just from "art" and have the resulting page have a different color scheme than if I queried "color" from "design"?
