I'd like some posts to look different from others.

Wordpress let's me easily switch themes for pages, but not posts.

Is there a plugin that will let me do that for posts?

To be clear, this allows you to choose another template file in the same theme. It does not use a different theme for a different post (which would be much harder I believe, because themes are ser up early in the loading process, before posts are queried). – Jan Fabry Apr 9 '11 at 20:56
Ya possible typo by the OP, I'm assuming he is referring to page templates. – Wyck Apr 9 '11 at 21:08
Yes. Thanks for understanding. I meant a different design from within the theme I'm currently using. – Andrew Warner Apr 9 '11 at 22:42
custom post templates ought to be in the WP core – helgatheviking Jul 2 '11 at 15:24
