Support » Themes and Templates » Make page available with two different templates?

  • Hey peeps,
    I’m working on a WP site for a web development firm, and they have a Portfolio section. Pages in the portfolio have custom fields and gallery images. This information is displayed using a portfolio-page.php template, and is looking great.

    What I’d like to do is load sections of a portfolio item (thumbnail, title, and custom fields) via AJAX when a user hovers a link to a portfolio page. I’ve got all of the JavaScript working, but what I need now is to find a way to display the portfolio page with a different template if it’s being called from the JavaScript.

    So, I basically want
    to load using a different template than what’s set in WP.

    Anyone know how I might be able to do this?

  • Ok, so I figured it out about 2 minutes after I posted the question…

    I ended up just adding an if statement to portfolio-page.php that checks if $_GET[‘popup’] is set. If it is, it displays minimal info.

    The JS functions then just add ?popup to the url before making the AJAX call.

    So simple. So elegant.
