I think I understand that if I want a certain category to display a different theme, I should copy the template next in the heirarchy (category.php) and rename it “category-XX” (where XX is the ID# of the category). Then upload that to the server and somehow wordpress just knows how to use it.
I am using Brandford Magazine (AWESOME, BTW)… and it comes with additional templates. I’m also using Category Pages to make more “blog like” pages, by category. If I want one of those templates as the template for category-xx, would I…
1. copy the different template file (ex: featuredpage.php), and rename THAT category-xx…
2. Do I need to copy the category.php file, rename that, and somehow include the featuredpage.php in that?
I guess I’m confused as to how the featuredpage.php ends up as the template for category-xx. I really have read the codex and the questions about this on the site, but I am just shy of getting it, I think.
