Good stuff, I agree with Magda. Using the Cat ID could be cool…

I never knew about the category-id.php. Now it will be more easy to me to make my websites more pretty.

I’m just starting “in this wonderland” so excuse my stupid questions. Could I delete files I don’t want to be shown in my blog? I have a hosting account with GD must I upload files there?

Unbelievable. I became increasingly easy to understand the structure of wordpress theme after watching this video.

Thanks for this information. It’s nice to be refreshed on things that you don’t use often enough. And, the author tidbit was great! Appreciate your tutorials!

Sorry for the silly question, but how do you get the “editor” to appearance in the “Appearance” section. I have WordPress 2.92. Is it supposed to be there by default or is it a plug-in?

Main Index is the highest in hierarchy. Excellent info. My favorite part is how you showed where the header, sidebar, and footer php script is located on each template.
(get header) on top
(get sidebar & footer) on bottom
I put my php example in the post above, but they got erased.

Well explained and still useful even over 2 years after publishing.

I’d also like to mention there are plugins that can tell you what file the page is using, since sometimes the hierarchy can get tricky, ‘show theme file’ plugin is pretty good at it.

I never knew about author.php and category-ID.php, really excellent screen cast. Thanks a lot 🙂

You say “go to theme and select editor”. I do not have that option. I have Edit CSS but none of these options or pages come up? I purchased the Edit CSS option / upgrade?
