Problems with new Static Front Page feature in 2.1 (1 post)

    I have a site set up where I have a front page that shows a the 2-3 most recent posts and then the actual blog index is at mysite.com/blog.

    I achieved this using the new Static Front Page feature by creating a page called home and setting that as the front page and then created a page called Blog and setting that as the Posts page. I also have permalinks set up to use the Date and Name based option.

    I also created a Blog template for the Blog page but I can't seem to get it to use it. It still seems to be using index.php, even though I have it set to use the page "Blog" which is using the Template "Blog"

    Is this a bug or expected behavior?

    I tried deleting the index.php file from the remote server, just to see what would happen and the whole site reverted back to the default template.

    I can work my way around this problem, but I figured if it's a bug I should report it.

    Thanks
