I’m not sure I understood correctly so correct me if I’m wrong.
Before anything else, so we are on the same page:
I don’t think you can create a
taxonomy.md file to change a taxonomy. What you can do is create an
_index.md file per term in
/content/ and create a separate folder per taxonomy in
/layouts/. Here’s an example:
/content/ folder, create a folder for each of your term with an
_index.md file in each. It should look like this:
/layouts/ folder, create a folder for each of your taxonomy with a
terms.html file each. It should look like this:
This is where you should place all the code related to the design layout when the terms are displayed and use those frontmatter params defined in your
(There is probably a better way of doing the above.)
If you are asking if you can have a different design/layout for each
term like so:
example.com/categories/cat1/ = different design
example.com/categories/cat2/ = different design
example.com/tags/tag1/ = different design
example.com/tags/tag2/ = different design
I’m not sure if it is possible, I have not encountered it and I haven’t tried it either.
/content/taxonomy/_index.md is where you add frontmatter params.
/layouts/taxonomy/terms.html is where you code the design and use those params.
Hope it helps. Shalom!
