    i have a different template for one of my categories (that includes some extra navigation at the top) - but when i click on one of the posts within that category it uses the single.php file and therefore looses the extra navigation at the top.....is there any way of making it use the different template when clicking on the individual posts???

    any help would be much appreciated!

    That behaviour is normal: category templates apply only to category archives/listings.

    Try this plugin: http://guff.szub.net/2005/07/21/post-templates-by-category/
