Support » Fixing WordPress » Load a given single post in Custom Post Type archive (best practice?)

  • Hi everybody!

    I have a custom post type in my site named “services” whose capability is ‘page’. The template structure that I have is:

    • archive-services.php – archive template
    • single-services.php – single post template
    • sidebar-services.php – sidebar that lists all the posts of the ‘services’ type with wp_list_pages (it highlights the current posts)

    The permalink structure for the archive is mysite.com/services/ and for the single posts mysite.com/services/post-1.

    And here comes my question. I need to load a given page on mysite.com/services/ instead the archive, and this page has to be highlighted in the sidebar.

    Which would be the best practive (and “cleanest”) to get this behaviour? Changing the main query/loop inside archive-services.php? Adding a template redirect in functions.php?

    Thanks in advance for your help!
