I want to use a different layout for some of my Categories. I want to change the header and footer that is used within the layout for 3 of my categories but it is not working. I have created a very simple layout and added it to the System->design->layouts manager and applied the new layout to the category i want to look different.

The route for the modified category is still ?route=product/category&path=18 it should be ?route=product/category2&path=18.

If i change the URL to what i think the route should be, it works fine

Any idea why it is not using new route and/or layout?

Version and theme?

You probably need to make additional .css or in-line style classes.

i am developing and testing it against the default theme version 1.5.6. I wanted to get it working against out of the box before applying it to a custom theme and SEO

It appears, then, that default utilizes catalog and newtheme utilizes catalog2, and that your hunch favoring "2" is correct. That suggests that election of theme in System / Settings / Store / Edit should lead to catalog or catalog2, correctly for the choice made.
