Hi
There is no simple way to select a different layout per category.  By a changed layout do you mean say just changing the background colour or something more extensive?
You can readily add a description for each Category.

How many categories are you in mind?

Lets say I want to have 2 different layouts. On the first one I want to show file date on the second I dont want to show file date.

Hi
That is actually challenging in the present setup as it is not a css controlled aspect.  But a potentially useful idea.  At present I do not think it is possible but would ask you to include it in the suggestions please.

Dear Colin,





May I briefly ask if it is still not possible to assign more than just ONE default layout for categories? Thank you, Thomas

Hi
Regret that the present structure of jD only permits one active layout per layout type.It is a useful suggestion.There are challenges as there is a Categories type that is used when showing top level Cats, another one when showing subcategories and a third one when showing a single category

Thanks for the quick response Colin. Is there perhaps a workaround to display a different "table" in a certain category than the default layout contains ? We want to display additional data fields in a certain category, which are not relevant in the other categories. Thanks again for a short review, Thomas

Hi
Maybe OK. Could you perhaps give an example of what you might want, and where the data comes from.
In the forthcoming jD3.9, which is in last stages of beta test, then Fields are available which may well provide a more general solution.
