I have created a custom post-type ( Testimonials ) and i have custom taxonomies for this post-type to separate the testimonials.

Custom Testimonial Taxonomies are 1) Commercial 2) Residential

Now, i am having issue when displaying them..

1 ) When the user clicks the parent link testimonials ( we will show testimonials from all category)

2 ) When the user clicks Commercial or Residential ( we want to show testimonials from that specific custom taxonomy )

How to create template for the above scenario?
