  • Is it possible to make the category front page a specific page instead ?

    Changing the menu so that all the category names are pointing to a specific category front page instead of the original one ? This one I would like to make in the page section manually.

    I have look end searched all over and cant find a way of doing it.

    You can format your special category template so that it is recognized as a page template by how the initial comment is written.Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates You would then use the Rewrite API to get your page loaded instead of the usual category template any time a /category/ permalink is used.

    In the end, you end up with the same thing, except perhaps it’s slightly easier to edit any static content, so I’m not sure I see the point. But then, I don’t have to, it’s not my site 🙂

    I should understand your reference to menus though, but I don’t. What menu points to front end pages? The back end menu points to a back end category page which alters the categories stored in the database. This is not directly related to how categories are displayed on the front end.

    Super will look in to this Thanks.
