My client has a requirement to show a specific template on particular high-traffic category pages, which they should be able to choose (i.e. no need for changing code).
I have a category with the auto-generated URL:
Aiming to override the default template for this category page, I’ve created a new custom post type with a permalink identical to the above. However, when the page loads it displays the original (default) template.
How can I force WordPress to show my new template, if a permalink exists within my custom post type?
