Support » Fixing WordPress » trouble with Template File Hierarchy

  • Resolved Piet Bos


    Hi, looked at many info in this forum, but I cannot find my problem with the archive.php: it’s not showing, instead it switches to index.php.

    The “normal” Template File Hierarchy is:

    I can and maybe will make a category.php for my theme and place some coding outside of the loop as described in the Codex (Different Text on Some Category Pages).

    But before I do that, I would like to understand why my theme does not pick up on the archive.php which is present and instead takes the index.php?

    The only reason I can think of is that my categories have no content yet…

    Can someone confirm this please? It would help me a great deal!
