    I'm not a developer but I'm very savvy. I'm not seeing any instructions that help someone like me use this plugin. Are there step by step instructions somewhere?

    This plugin primarily modifies the Template Hierarchy, which is the system wordpress uses to determine which template to use whenever a page is being rendered.

    To use it, it just needs to be on and you simply need to have a template in your theme named 'child-of-category.php' or any other variation as it is explained in the plugin's readme file.

    Its identical to how WordPress already works, so if you have questions about what the Template Hierarchy I recommend you take a look a the Codex page for it - it gives a fuller explanation than I.

    This plugin also adds a few conditional functions that help determine if a category is a child or parent of another. These a simply php functions and can be used like any other PHP function as long as the plugin is turned on.

    Unfortunately there really is not much that I could put in a step-by-step tutorial because it all depends on which part of the modified hierarchy you want to use - thats why generally speaking its intended as a development tool for theme developers.

    Hope this helps.

    If your looking for something that will give a user interface that allows admins to pick a proper WordPress 'Page' to represent a category, thats not what this plugin does - this plugin functions on the template level only.
