Gotcha. I was thinking that creating the additional template files would actually create more work, in that with every theme update I’d have to check my child theme templates to make sure they were up to speed. Using my child theme functions.php to “inject” my custom output directly into the parent’s theme templates seemed more DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself).

BUT, being that I’m hearing this directly from the theme developer (and someone far more experienced with WordPress), I’m going to take your advice. I’m assuming that I should copy the archive.php and single.php directly from GeneratePress to make my child theme templates… I appreciate your insight, Tom. Thanks!
