I've created a CPT named
portfolio. Now i want to create a page which will act as an INDEX for this CPT. Now i've two choices ....
a) Make a custom template having custom WP_Query. In this way i can assign this template to any page and that page will work as an index.
archive-portfolio.php instead, which will act as an INDEX.
Now i've a few questions ...
1: Which is the correct approach?
2: If (a) then what is the actual usage of
archive-cpt.php page then?
3: If (b) is correct approach, is there any possibility to make this page available in wordpress menu manager by default and also in the drop down menu (located at
Setting->Reading) to use it as front page?
