Hi Open Table,

To make a new page template that shows certain categories pages, You need to follow the below steps;
1) Create a .php file in the themes page templates folder, for example: category_simple.php
2) Copy all the below code and replace the category name with the category that you want in

query_posts(array('category_name' => 'shekhar'));

3) Remember to change the template name as your wish.
3) Save the file and go to pages and choose the page templates.





    
<?php $blogstyle = get_theme_mod( 'blog_style', 'blogright' ); switch ($blogstyle) { // Right Column case "blogright" : echo '
'; // get specific category pages query_posts(array('category_name' => 'shekhar')); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); // get the article layout get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); endwhile; // get the pagination circumference_paging_nav(); else : // if no posts get_template_part( 'content', 'none' ); endif; echo '
'; break; // Left Column case "blogleft" : echo '
'; echo '
'; query_posts(array('category_name' => 'shekhar')); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); endwhile; circumference_paging_nav(); else : get_template_part( 'content', 'none' ); endif; echo '
'; break; // Left and Right Column case "blogleftright" : echo '
'; echo '
'; query_posts(array('category_name' => 'shekhar')); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); endwhile; circumference_paging_nav(); else : get_template_part( 'content', 'none' ); endif; echo '
'; break; // Wide Column case "blogwide" : echo '
'; query_posts(array('category_name' => 'shekhar')); if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); endwhile; circumference_paging_nav(); else : get_template_part( 'content', 'none' ); endif; echo '
'; break; } ?>
<?php get_footer();

Thanks.
