    Hello!

    I am working with a client to redesign her blog for her. She uses Genesis and we purchased the luscious theme. I haven’t done much with the homepage yet, I plan to completely alter the appearance if I can, graphics wise. Anyways, my question is she wants each page or category page to have a different theme. For example, she will have her homepage layout and when the user goes to the recipes section she would like a “retro 50s” theme. I pretty much plan to do all of this in CSS but I cannot figure out how to get a specific CSS file for that one category page (or other pages in the future, just focusing on this one right now).

    To be a little less long winded, I want to be able to use the child theme for the homepage of the blog, but modify it to change the looks for different pages and category pages throughout the blog. Is this possible? I have been researching with no luck. The further I have gotten is learning how to set the cat=4 on the page to only show specific categories.

    Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

    Amber

    I think the best way to do this is to use body classes. You can designate the body class on an individual post or page, and you can assign a body class to a particular category archive (I think.) Here are some tutorials/links that might be helpful:
