Using WordPress 2.1.2
Where can I force WordPress to use the template file category.php even if
there are no posts?
I have a category named "announcement" and it lists out my posts. I have a
filter activated that filters posts based on some criterea the users can set
(think of it as tags).
I made a category.php file that adds some text and links at the top if the
category name is "announcement", but here is my problem: When no posts match
after adding the filter, Wordpress returns an 404 page, not the
category-page. This is _very_ confusing for my users.
I find the category subsystem in WordPress very hard to work with, since I
sometimes need to find a category based on its name, not the ID number.
Because of this i can not use a file called category-<ID>.php, since the ID
may change depending on the installation.
