First post on these forums so hi all

Looking for some help with Categories, don't know if i'm being stupid but is there a way to display a different layout for each category?

I've set:

xcategoryusetemplate = YES
xcategorydisplaytemplate = tmp_categorytemplate.htm
and then "Reload Shop Configuration" just to be sure.

I've managed to modify the "tmp_categorytemplate.htm" so it is the way i want it, but i have other categories and subcategoies that i would like to display different.

I tried adding a different category template name to the "Template file" field when adding a new category, but it seems to ignore this and use "tmp_categorytemplate.htm" for all of them.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance,

When the file shopdisplaycategories.asp is viewed there is only one template which can be used: tmp_categorytemplate.htm
If you modify this template it will change the way all categories are displayed on shopdisplaycategories.asp.
If you want to change the way the products within a category are displayed (shopdisplayproducts.asp) you can add your own template file to the category Template File field
