I'm using WP to build a site with 50+ categories for a university campus. They would like to be able to create new categories using different looks.
The ideal thing would be to be able to choose which template to use, like with pages, but since that is not possible out of the box (and I haven't found any plugins that will enable me to do it either) my last resort is to write a snippet of code that will check parent category and then based on the result use a specific template.
I have 8 main categories (parents), each assigned with a different look.
I would like each subcategory (child) to be given the same as the parent automatically. Is there a way to do this?
