I need to sell books and electronics in one magento setup
Books have attributes like author, isbn ect which are not present in electronics.
hence I am trying to set separate template for all products under ‘books’ category
If I add the template settings under catalog > custom layout it works fine as long as the url has the catelog part in the url
But in magento this not always so..there are multiple urls to a product ... like in search result the url does not have the catelog part in the url and hence the default template loads and not the one set in the catelog settings.
Another behavior is once I visit a book going via the catelog the template works fine not rest of the session even if the url is missing the catelog part.
I can not change the default template as this will all products in all categoies/catelog
Please suggest some solution.
thanks in advance for any hint/support.
