Custom Post Problems - Wordpress Anthology book

Hi all - hope someone can help with this I have been beating my head against the wall for some time now.

I have used several references to figure out how to create a Custom Post Type, including chapter 4 of Wordpress Anthology. I can successfully create the Custom Post Type, I create the Archive template page, but I cannot figure out how to access the Archive or Single Post pages for them. Even when I just enter manually archive-(custom post name) nothing comes up.

Any direction would be greatly appreciated!

Are you having trouble finding it in the dashboard, or in the front-end of the website?

If you’re editing the post/page in the dashboard, right below the title is the permalink for the page.
