Yahoo Styled Directory – using category templates
I am trying to build a Yahoo Styled directory at this site:
I am struggling to get this right!
I have built the index.php file as standard. I have then built a number of category-21.php type files to reflect the categories.
The idea is that we have a parent called Businesses. This then breaks down into three children – Accommodation, Eating Out and Shops. Each of these then breaks down into further categories. Accommodation is Apartments, B & B, Cottages, etc…
So I have created a number of templates for each category. For businesses I have asked it to exclude the uncategorised and Community categories. For each of the next I have asked it to list the ‘child-of’ and the same for the next. Finally I have asked the last category to list the posts by their title tag.
Apart from needing to create a ton of templates(!) there are some problems with what I have created.
Each of the templates is repeating itself. The bottom of this complex layer is fine! The rest are repeating themselves. Any ideas please?
Even better – any other suggestions how I might go about this please?
