Say i have a url: /lists/more-lists/even-more-lists and i have a route lists/more-lists/*.

If i hit example.com/lists/more-lists/even-more-lists then it tries to load the index template (not the template defined by my route)

If i hit example.com/lists/more-lists/foo then it loads the template defined by my template route.

I should add, that the url segments are category url's.

So, if a category section has "has it's own url's" ticked, then the template defined there will take precedence over the custom route. Custom routes i'm told are a fallback and will not override already set routing.
