[resolved] Previous Posts Link not working on index page (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I have a standard index page in a custom theme (format copied from twentyeleven), and previous_posts_link (and next_posts_link) isn't working:

    + Plugins are all disabled
    + Previous_post_link works as expected (link to single post)
    + There's nothing in the functions.php to affect it
    + I've tried regenerating permalinks
    + I've switched to Twenty Eleven (works) and back to my custom theme, does not work
    + I've tried wp_reset_query

    This is index.php, posts displaying on home page as per the default WP install settings.

    Any ideas of other things to try or ways to diagnose this?

    Thank you,
    Katie

    For some reason this works instead:
    <?php posts_nav_link('  ','« Previous Posts','Next Posts »'); ?>

    No idea why previous_posts_link didn't work, but this does - I'm marking this as resolved.
