category-news.php template file to the theme directory but it doesn't apply the template of the category but instead to the
category-slug.php is the highest level of the template heirarchy of WordPress so it should accept the file. I tried also
category-id.php and it also doesn't work. The same for archives template files.
However, when I use
page-slug.php it's working without any problems.
I checked that there is not any conflicts with the permalinks, it's a parent category with the slug
news and the class of the page of the category is
category-news. What can cause this problem?
