Category to Over ride other categories

Hello. I'm looking for a way to have 1 category override all other categories? Almost like an archive category. So all other categories would stay selected for a post in the back end, but once this special category is selected, all others won't be applied or visible for the front end except this special category. Thanks!

S├ębastien | French WordpressDesigner answers:

in your template you can write :

if ( in_category( 'your_category' )) {
/* the temlate for this special category */
} else {
the template of category.php }


so if your special category is applied for this post, the template of this categroy is applied,
otherwise the basic template is applied
