Hi Guys,

I can work my way around most WP templates but I have a question..

My client would like to have a WP blog but wants to split the site into two areas – it’s a music site so they would like to have one blog for Rock and one for R & B.

The basic layout etc. will be exactly the same but how do you get it to load the correct style sheets? And how do you get it to only show a certain Category of Posts?

If anyone can help that’s be great!

You can simply add different categories directly to the WP menus… then a check in the header and you load the specific layout for the specific category. You can achieve this in a million of ways… you can also create a custom post type for a blog clone so you can use the whole categories system for both the areas…

Thansk that;s useful to know.

Funnily enough I just read this – http://wp.tutsplus.com/articles/general/php-for-wordpress-mastering-conditional-statements-and-tags/

I think this pretty much covers what I need cos all I really want to do is say “If Category – Rock then display this stylesheet”

Lets see if I can get this bad boy working lol
