#14328: next page doesn't work when using a template page for front page
 Reporter:  juggledad     |       Owner:                                
     Type:  defect (bug)  |      Status:  new                           
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  Awaiting Review               
Component:  General       |     Version:  3.0                           
 Severity:  normal        |    Keywords:  template front page pagination
 1) use the TwentyTen theme
 2) create a template using the 'Page of Posts' example from
 3) create some post with a category - more than a page worth
 4) create a page called 'MyTest' and assign it the 'PageofPosts' template
 5) add a custom field 'category' and the name of your category
 6) test it out, it will go to the second page with no problem. If you look
 at the link you will see: http://yourdomain.com/?page_id=50&paged=2 (the
 50 is my page id)
 7) go to dashboard->settings->reading and change 'Front Page Displays' to
 'a static page' and set the Front Page to MyTest
 8) go view the page and try to go to the next page.

 What happens is that the first page is fine, but when you try to go to the
 next page, the link is http://yourdomain.com/?paged=2 and the index.php is
 executed, not the page you specified.
