Posts page won't take a template (4 posts)

    It insists on taking on the Home template. I've tried setting it to default and a special template. No dice.

    COINCIDENTALLY, the static home page is set to the Home template. Hmmmm.

    Index page

    Posts page

    Index page uses the Page template you specified in the editing page.

    Posts page uses the home.php or index.php, regardless which Page template you choose for the page.

    Think this way - the Posts page(page_id=192) exists only for the purpose of defining a URL to the latest posts page. So what you see on http://thegasgun.com/?page_id=192 not really is a Page#192 but a non-static front page.
    is_home() is true, is_page() is false, and it uses home.php template.

    Ok, let me try some changes and I'll get back to this thread.

    Yup, that worked. I made a special template for home (a dupe of its old template), and changed the old template the way I wanted it to look for displaying blog posts. Thanks Yoshi.
