This may be a weird scenario, but...I have a custom post type called Resources. When visiting /resources/ I get the archive as expected. What I want is a text describing this post type. Therefore I've made a page with the exact name and path. If I now go to /resources/ I still get the archive page, which is good. So, I created a custom template (archive-resources.php) and from there I searched pages with the same path and then I find my page and is able to write out the text before listing the archive.
What I want to know is that, is this a good way to solve my problem? if not, how can I make it better?
