Support » Fixing WordPress » Custom Category Theme Hurdle.

  • Hello,

    I have been asked to make one WP installation into many
    so to speak by desiging a custom category theme, header … for each cat’ page. Which will be re-directed to via .htacess or whatever method they choose to use.

    EG; each custom cat pages becomes a mini site.

    I have done this by following the docs on custom cat pages
    but have run into a problem with the comments.

    How would i go about making a separate comments page that links to each custom header and cat page. ATM the comments page pulls the main header and i need to them indvidualized to suite. Hope that makes sense.

  • If you want a different template for a category, just create a new template called category-#.php where # is the category ID.

    Hi Oscar,

    I’ve done the theme for the cat page but!! i need a separate comments page to fit the cat theme.

    Each cat page will basically be one site/landing page.
    Illeaviating the need for multiple WP installations.
    (See link below) < ManUnited

    ?cat=7 < Spurs
    ?cat=8 < Arsenal

    and so on..

    If you try to leave a comment it pulls the header from what ever is the current installed theme. Which would not be ideal.

    Can i make custom comments.php page’s and somehow link to them from the cat pages.

    Sorry, the link you posted seems weird/broken :S so I can’t see what actually happens. < if that doesn’t work then we’re doomed.

    The link to the cat page in questions is ManU in the right sidebar categories if it does work. 🙂

    Try it for yourself

    It seems that the WP theme is broken

    Works fine here. Can you access the page are there errors or it just doesn’t pull up?

    Sorry Oscar i’m a first rate tool.

    I just checked in FF and IE and it wasn’t formatting the page via my css rules. It appears the path to the css file was missing a ” That Opera obviously thinks is okay to parse.

    Hope it is all working now.. if not i do belive i’ll scream.

    That’s not the comments template, is single.php template.

    You could try the solution in this post
