Chip Bennett has released the ultimate template hierarchy chart with a detailed overview of almost every possible scenario a WordPress themer could encounter. Looking back at all the different versions of this chart (including the one posted here at WPCandy three and a half years ago!) it is amazing to watch the graph slowly grow in complexity as WordPress fills out as a content management system and adds new features.
Feeling nostalgic, I set out to catalogue some of the variations of this chart that have made an appearance on the internet over the years. Some of the versions might be off, but I think I’ve captured a pretty good overview of how things went in the gallery below. Which one of these do you remember from when you were starting out with WordPress?
