GYS Themed Categories

Description

This plugin allows you to assign a theme to a specific category. It is actually @MikeLopez’s code, I just tweaked it to work on WordPress 3+.

This version adds child theme capability, and the ability to assign a theme to a new category as it is created. It also ignores pages and the home page, so the current theme is applied there.

as of wp 4.4 unfortunately this great plugin doesn’t work no more. categories and sub categories are styled with the set up theme, but single posts now always appear in standard theme layout.
