Problem with child categories

My parent categories are all working perfectly, but for some reason my child categories are loading base.php instead of base-category.php.

I have a category called football - this works. Inside there there is a category called premier leage - this is using base.php and not showing the articles in that category. Can anyone help me set up child categories to use base-category.php? thank you.

The WordPress template hierarchy is not changed with Sage. Are you sure the filenames are correct?

Show us what you’ve got :wink:

Is the markup so different for base-category.php that it requires a whole separate wrapper, or could what you’re doing be accomplished with category.php or index.php rather than overriding base.php for this one instance?
