I currently have wp in a directory and displaying in root, although there are some issues with that.
I have a static front using front-page template and the blog page using 'default' template (what that really is i am not sure) I have both loop-index.php and index.php in the child of twenty tens folder.
When I change from static to blog posts-- the blog page does not show the titles or meta data. Although this page displays fine if using static front.
My pro bono client wants to lose the static front.. there in is the issue.
I have checked hataccess, the root and directory index.php and all seem correct.
