So I have a Resources page that list several different resource post by category. Then under Resources I want to have a Whitepapers page that list all the post with a category of 'whitepaper'.
When I make the Whitepapers page have the parent Resources the page quits using the custom template and reverts to using the index.php layout. When I remove the parent the custom template works fine.
I'm using a permalink plugin so I can make the url structure they way I want. Just the admin gets messier with both Resources and Whitepapers at the same level instead of -Whitepapers within Resources. Also, once this is fixed I'll have several more categories under Resources.
Just trying to understand the underlying problem because I have News and Events category pages using the About-Us parent with no problems. Thanks for helping a Wordpress newbie...
