I'm currently Working on a new feature packed WordPress theme framework and one of it's features is the ability to select a custom theme template for a specific category,tag or custom taxonomy term, and a few weeks ago i saw a this question so i cooked up a little plugin from that class to do exactly that and published it as Custom Category Template plugin.
What does it do?
This Plugin allows you to select specific page template per category just like with pages from within the admin panel.
How does it work?
- Simple and lightweight.
- Easiest solution for category template ever.
Download the latest Version from WordPress.org
Simple Installation steps:
- Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
- Then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.
- Quick bug fix
- Initial release
