I always run into an issue with creating archive or landing pages for custom post types and wanted to know how others handle this.
If I want to have a landing page for a custom post type, however I want the archive page to contain editable content (i.e. be a physical page). I will need to make a custom template for my archive page. This issue with this is that there are no relationship of this page to the custom post type. So now I need to set archive to false and the rewrite rule to match the slug of the custom post type. Also when viewing a custom post type single page, the menu doesn't know the custom landing page is active.
Does anyone have a logical solution for this?
