So I've googled a million times and been on countless threads here, but my issue persists.
I am getting a 404 page on my 'page 2' of latest blog posts page (index).
I'm using a static front-page.
reset permalinks / tried variants
adjusted 'most posts on blog' number.
I am using this post query
$page = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 2; query_posts("showposts=2&paged=$page");
My blog page is domain.com/news so the page tries to visit domain.com/news/page/2 for the next listing but it's just a 404.
