Apply custom taxonomy archive template to children
There is a slight problem that I cannot figure out by myself:
I created a custom post type (
tours) with custom taxonomy (
tour categories). I have created a
taxonomy-tour-categories.php to display an
archive page for each tour category. Works perfect.
I have a
tour category (
School tours) which needs a different layout, so I added a second template
taxonomy-tour-categories-shool-tours.php with my desired layout. Again it works perfect.
The problem is that the
'school tours' tour category has its own subcategories (like
'science labs' and so on) which I would like to be displayed by the
taxonomy.tour-categories-school-tours.php template, but are displayed by the
taxonomy.tours-categories.php template. Why that?
I thought that wordpress – when a template file for a specific term is missing – would fall back to the immediately above level template file (in this case
taxonomy.tours-categories-school-tours.php). What am I missing?
Thanks for your help!
