Is exactly what I need and have been looking for so thank you to whoever contributed to that entry.
Now my question is it says create a new category.php - my confusion is what do I or shoudl I copy it from and what should I take out? What I'm trying to get is a result which has a main category (a front page), and then several links to other categories with different styles.
So going by this new category.php what is it's purpose. You create the id related php files say id 1-6, so what is the purpose of the category.php file and is it needed? More importantly which file would provide the best template for individual categories and does it apply to child categories from that specific parent?
