I am developing a blog with multiauthor and I am having problems because I want them to choose between just 2 templates and the page has to be created under their own main page.
Explaining better thi sis the situation:
Each author has his own main Page. Then they can create as many pages as they want, but always under their own main page. This I accomplished with Role Scopper that gives them only acces to their main page, so any page they create will be a subpage of that one. And then in their main page I can list all subpages.
But I want them to select from 2 templates, but I have 5 page templates. I do not want them to see the others, so I was thinking about creating a magic field where they can select between just these 2 templates with a drop down, but I have no idea how to call the the right template for the page with magic fields because the template field is already a custom field for pages with their own values.
Should I do this in another way? Like a special category of posts with a special template and list all posts by author under their main page?
And can I hide this category from showing anywhere on the blog besides under their main page?
Any ideas how to make these two things work together?
