Templates for categories

Perhaps I'm too fast with this, only playing around with PL for not more than two weeks... but it would be great if I could create more than just one category template and choose which template to use for which category in the WP categories section.

Hi there

 

As far as I am aware this isn't possible at the moment due to the way categories are set up in wordpress. If there is a way around it then our developer would definitely look into it.

 

However, there are a couple of work arounds, one would be to use a third party section like Annyloop http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/anyloop/ which could be put into a custom template. Or by using a css solution, each category page will have an ID generated, css could be used to hide/display options on the template via the category ID.

Perhaps I don't understand how it works, but usually I'm able to create different category templates, like in this screenshot: http://ompldr.org/vaWQyMQ

 

Just creating a category-ID.php and I have a new template.

With PageLines Framework being a drag and drop framework and with that, is different to how standard themes are built. So creating a .php document like above will not work. I will speak to our developers and see if there is anything that can be done, but with them being busy so this may take some time.

Ok. I'm curious as to what the developers are working on then ;).

Does Pagelines have a roadmap that users can follow?

Unfortunately, we do not have a roadmap, but you can use the tracker to see what bugs and possible features will be implemented.
