function get_category_template() {}

Retrieve path of category template in current or parent template.
Works by first retrieving the current slug for example ‘category-default.php’ and then trying category ID, for example ‘category-1.php’ and will finally fallback to category.php template, if those files don’t exist.

Source code

function get_category_template() {

	$category = get_queried_object();

	$templates = array();

	$templates[] = "category-{$category->slug}.php";
