    Hello all,

    I'm trying to build a template that WordPress should use for one specific category and all its child categories. Is there a simple way to get around to this without building either single templates for all the categories or writing extensive conditional queries?

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    If your Category is 6 couldn't you create a category-6.php template?

    Apparently, it's not that simple since this won't work for children of category 6.

    Sorry missed that. Guess that means you may need to resort to query based template of which I've no experience but you might look at this:

    Oops for some reason I can't edit that last post; I forgot the problem with links to codex that have a dash...
