I need to use different product templates based on which category the product is in.

How would I go about doing that? I don't see any info about this.

Depends on which version of CC you're using.

I'm using v5 ~ I would up adding some stuff to catalogue.class.php:

// Customize template by category id

$catid = $product['cat_id'];

if($catid == 2){

	$usetemplate = 'content.product.retail.php';

}else if($catid == 3){

	$usetemplate = 'content.product.bulk.php';

}else{

	$usetemplate = 'content.product.case.php';

}

				

			

$content = $GLOBALS['smarty']->fetch('templates/' . $usetemplate );			

//$content = $GLOBALS['smarty']->fetch('templates/content.product.custom.php');

Modifying the classes is never a good idea. Besides, you can do this using SMARTY. {$PRODUCT.cat_id} holds the product's category ID. You can then use this with the technique outlined here:

Thanks Homar;

I got around this by replacing the content of the content.product.php with this:

{if $PRODUCT.cat_id == 2}

    {include scope=parent file="skins/$SKIN_FOLDER/templates/content.product.retail.php"}

{else}

    {include scope=parent file="skins/$SKIN_FOLDER/templates/content.product.bulk.php"}

{/if}

works just fine.
