Support » Themes and Templates » retrieve layout

  • HI.
    I’m working in comicpress and will have 3 comics in my site, one of them will be a graphic novel so I need to change the layout for that particular category to “graphic novel” , which is a preset in the theme. I have no knowledge of CSS but after reading some posts and tutorials I figure the best way to go would be to make a category template and call the layout, however I can’t script CSS, heres the idea…


    if category = “x” {
    layout = graphic novel layout.

    my questions are:
    Is this the best way to go for it? will it work?
    how should I call the graphic novel layout? where can I find out its instance name (or whatever is used to call it).
    If its only a couple of lines, could someone write it for me?

    Thank you.

  • well I’ve done this all by myself without knowing CSS.
    I’d like to share it since there’s not a clean answer anywhere except: “learn CSS/templates”

    What I did was:

    Open up funcitons.php and find out the name of the layout.
    Copy it close, then open up single.php
    After the get header function write”

    $post = $wp_query->post;

    if (in_category(‘5’)) {
    $comicpress_themeinfo[‘cp_theme_layout’] = ‘lgn’;

    of course substitute 5 for the ID for your category and lgn for whichever layout you want for it

    Save and close. Enjoy.

    Thanks to everyone who replied (lol).
