WP example

If your blog is at http://example.com/blog/ and a visitor clicks on a link to a category page such as http://example.com/blog/category/your-cat/, WordPress looks for a template file in the current theme’s directory that matches the category’s ID to generate the correct page. More specifically, WordPress follows this procedure:

Looks for a template file in the current theme’s directory that matches the category’s slug. If the category slug is “unicorns,” then WordPress looks for a template file named category-unicorns.php.
If category-unicorns.php is missing and the category’s ID is 4, WordPress looks for a template file named category-4.php.
If category-4.php is missing, WordPress will look for a generic category template file, category.php.
If category.php does not exist, WordPress will look for a generic archive template, archive.php.
If archive.php is also missing, WordPress will fall back to the main theme template file, index.php.
