Activating a Template based on category chosen by the customer at sign up

Is it possible to have a plugin activating a Template based on category chosen by the customer at sign up? that would be great! since I was reading about the default theme and the random theme, besides, I was reading about the Blog Templates and how you can convert a Blog into template. Then I thought about that plugin.

What do you think?

Thank you,

    Hi @Imad,

    Not quite sure I understand you fully.

    What do you mean based on category? You mean you are using a plugin such as site categories?

    New blog templates will allow your users to select a template to use, but i don't think there's a way for a template to be selected based on the category in site categories. Though that does sound like a great feature? I could certainly add that request to the site categories/new blog templates feature requests if you want me to?

    Hope this helps

    Oh! no :slight_smile: Thanks for the response. What I meant is: Assuming you are signing up at edublog, during the sign up, the sign page asks if you are student, teacher, professor, etc.. Now let's image that we a have template associated with a student (just an example) and Template with the teacher needs, and another Template what a Dentist might be looking for, Lawyer, IT professionals, and so on :slight_smile: what do you think?

    The first impression after they login or check their site would be: Ahhhhhhh!!! :slight_smile: of course, it will require a lot of things to be done from my side, but it pays off on the long run.

    Thank you Vaughn
