If you look at WordPress Template Hierarchy for custom post type you’ll see it’s using archive-{post_type}.php.

Also, don’t create custom post type for everything, that doesn’t make sense.

  • Home, should be a page
  • Articles, should be posts
  • Products, should be custom post type
  • Resources, should be a page
  • Videos, could be custom post type
  • Contact, should be a page

You can also create specific templates for your pages.
