Hello,

I'm looking for a solution for the following:

I'd like to add a custom graphic (clickable) to the top center column of each category page (there are just 4).

I figure I will have to create a template page for each category, but is there a way to add a unique widget area to the top of each page - or is this not the best way to handle this?

I apologize, but I have never really worked with template pages before and don't really understand their capabilities and how they integrate with atahualpa.

I am using Ata: 3.53 and WP 3.0.5

I will be very thankful for any help here and the more simply you can put it the better. I feel like there must be a relatively simple solution for this.

I can't think of a relatively simple solution. What comes to my mind is creating a new widget area above the loop, and using a couple of plugins. One would be List Category Posts to create four pages for the categories and the other would be Display Widgets to only show the clickable graphic that you put in a widget on the page desired.
