Hi

I know in catalog.xml i can setup a tag for example<PRODUCT_1> and I can set a specific layout for product with ID 1

But what i need to do is have every product within a specific category use the same layout without having to add <PRODUCT_#> for every single product added

How can this be done?

One possible way is to use the layout update in the Design tab of the Manage Products in the backend. Once you set it up, you may then duplicate the product or export it and import it back after you add all the products in Excel.

hi

that is not really any good. This is for a client who will be adding products themselves without any programming knowledge or knowledge of XML, XHTML or anything! So the products when added to a specific category need to pickup the correct template automatically

thanks
