[closed] category.php is being ignored (5 posts)

    I'm using a child theme for the Origin theme and created a category.php Category template copying it from archive.php, however it is being ignored by WordPress even when the code is identical to the Archive template.

    To make sure there were no errors in the Category template page, I made the two templates identical and tested by temporarily removing the footer from either template - it affects category pages when I remove it from archive.php, and nothing happens when I remove it from category.php.

    This suggests that there is no error in the loop and it may be something to do with how the theme looks for page templates (?).

    Also, because Origin doesn't come with a category.php, I included one in the parent theme folder and this didn't fix anything.

    Any help appreciated!

    possibly ask directly in the specific support section for the theme:
    http://wordpress.org/support/theme/origin (scroll down to the form)

    what happens if you deactivate all plugins?

    Thank you for the response! Should I just post the same query in the aforementioned forum instead? Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

    I did deactivate all plugins - problem remains.

    yes
    - the theme's author seems to actively answer problems in that section.

    Moved my question to the appropriate forum. Please dispose of this one as necessary.
