I've installed version 2.07 3 days ago, so I'm a wordpress newbie.
I've just upgraded to wordpress 2.1 and now I get post *and* pages displayed as posts on the front page (blog).
I know that pages are in fact just posts in the database, but in blog stats I get correct number of posts and comments, so it still should work.
I'm using broad leaf 1.5a theme, but I didn't change anything in the theme folder during upgrade.
In index.php file there's the following loop:
<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
Does it distinguish posts from pages? Or maybe some other function should be used there?
