    I want a custom archives.php page. I’ve created a Block Element which displays the posts exactly on how I want them and inherited from the main query. My problem is that I can’t seem to override the parent theme’s archives.php so I’m left with the posts rendered twice.

    I tried duplicating an archives.php in the child theme and deleting the code that renders the posts (e.g., have_posts() block) but that didn’t do anything. WordPress seems to have ignored it completely.

    Any thoughts on how I would go about this?

    Hi there,

    you need to use the Block Element – Content Template so this will update the content.php template:

    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/block-element-content-template/

    In the next update you will be able to unhook the entire loop in the template and replace it with a GB Query Loop.

    This works, thank you!
