 Hey @michael.ecklund,

 Anytime you create a CPT for use as a method of public facing content
 creation in web page format where the use is meant to be browsable by URL.


 The current functionality of CPTs should have this built in. Otherwise it
 would be similar to if native posts worked like:


 or if pages worked like:


 But WP does not work this way because adding the CPT as a root path
 interferes with many SEO, promotional and content strategies. Please take
 a look at the [wordpress.stackexchange.com] question that has got a lot of
 attention. This functionality is desired by many.
