I would like to have the ability for a category to use multiple themes so that it can be displayed in different ways in different places.
It would also be useful to include a theme option to limit the number of files displayed.
If that can be incorporated into the shortcode, that would be useful.
1. A page showing the most recent (say, 5) files in multiple categories would perhaps use the tree theme for each category (as it is a minimalist theme), but on the category's own page, the full listing would be available using a theme giving more detail.
2. There are widgets which allow display of a page or of a shortcode. With the above functionality, this would be a simple way of having a sidebar widget giving, say, the top 5 downloads in a category, or the 5 most recent files in a category. Again, the widget would need a simple theme, such as the tree theme, but the main category page would have the more detailed theme display.
Thanks for considering these ideas.
