Specifying a product detail template for a category

Oct 9, 2009 at 4:29 AM


I have a feeling I've already asked about this, but can't find the post.

I want to be able to have specific templates for particular categories, and nature of the products vary so much.

However, when I do this, if have the problem that if I use the default on the store to show all categories, or if I used featured products, when you click on the link it uses the standard template, not the one for the category that the product is a part of.

Is there a way around this, or do we just no use All Categories, and not use featured products?

Hi John,

Yes in the categories you can specify the template that you wish to use when displaying the category.  BackOffice>Catalog>Categoies....Product Display Template:,List Template: and List Alternate Template:
