Hi there,

I was wondering if there is a way that I can re-arrange a single event template based on the event’s category (or some other taxonomy)?

Thanks

Hi there,

That’s an interesting idea. The tricky thing about assigning a template based on a taxonomy is an event can be assigned to more than one category/custom taxonomy.

The recommended way to assign a custom template is by using the Page Template selector metabox within the event editor. Additional custom templates can be built by following the guide from the WP theme developer documentation:

https://developer.wordpress.org/themes/template-files-section/page-template-files/#creating-page-templates-for-specific-post-types

Another approach you could take is you start with one template and add conditional checks within the template to change the layout if the currently displayed event is assigned to a specific category.
