This custom archive template for Genesis, enables you to fully customize all elements on any archive page type including category, tag, custom post type, custom taxonomy & custom term type pages.
On top of this, you can add unique content for advertisements before or after each entry which only display on the archive page and not single posts using custom meta boxes located on every single post edit screen.
The content for each advertisement can be added using ACF ( free or premium version ) or the default custom fields meta box native to WordPress. If ACF is inactive, the content will still display.
If empty, a default can be displayed or no advertisement inserted for each entry as seen in the demo video.
