I have a few different page templates that use the Wordpress loop to pull posts (examples would be a blog page, portfolio page, etc. that loop through and display posts differently). Everything (including pagination) works perfect when the page templates are applied to standard Wordpress pages.
My problem is that when you take one of these pages and set one to display as the Wordpress front page (in Settings > Reading > Front page displays), everything works except pagination. When you attempt to go to the next page of posts, the URL is correct in the browser, but it just keeps showing the first page of posts.
Is there some sort of trick to this? Has anyone accomplished this?
