I've got a site with several locales and want to reuse a set of categories across locales but want to target a locale specific template from within each.

Is it possible to set a locale-specific path within the category group settings, eg

{{ craft.locale }}/_video



  • This is probably one for your routes.php. Depending on how you would want to structure your URLs. Another quick way around could be to use a shared template to include the correct template Oct 14, 2015 at 8:52

It looks like this isn't possible. But what you can do instead is either:

  • Route them to a shared template using the category settings and use include programatically:

    {% include 'myCatTemplate--' ~ craft.locale %}
  • Disable "Categories in this group have their own URLs" in the category settings and add your own dynamic routes.

  • Thanks - not really looked into dynamic routes before. Seems like a good opportunity to investigate further! Oct 14, 2015 at 8:58
