Retrieve path of category template in current or parent template.

The hierarchy for this template looks like:

  1. category-{slug}.php
  2. category-{id}.php
  3. category.php

An example of this is:

  1. category-news.php
  2. category-2.php
  3. category.php

The template hierarchy and template path are filterable via the {@see '$type_template_hierarchy'} and {@see '$type_template'} dynamic hooks, where $type is 'category'.
