I've now tried installing WP three times, using 1.2, 1.2.1, and 1.3 alpha, and each time I'm getting the same problem. Namely, no posts are showing up. No matter what page I go to, I get:
Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.
If I try to edit posts in the admin, it doesn't find any. If I create new posts, they don't show up. With each install, I totally blew away the database tables and had the system recreate them. And no problems were reported during the install. Any suggestions? Thanks.
