Template hierarchy

Not sure if this is the pipeline.

If you assign a custom template to a product or category at the moment it will override the template you have set in the website template section.

What would be great is if the hierarchy went like this.

Default < Website < Store view < Category < Sub Categories < Product

Or something along those lines. So if i have a product that requires a slight layout change it can inherit all the other template files from the next template down in the hierarchy.

it’s not as it is right now?
did you try editing custom layouts in categories and products and see how it works?

I added a custom template to the category and it overwrites the template you have chosen in the website template config.
