I'm having sort of a strange problem with Custom Query String Reloaded. I'm using WP 2.5.1, and CQS 2.9.
Because I'm using WP more as a content management tool rather than a blog, I have is_category Show -1 posts per page, ordered by date ASC
I do have a blog category, set as cat_blog Show 5 posts per page, ordered by date DESC, and it's working great.
I also have a subcategory, set as cat_mim Show 5 posts per page, ordered by date DESC, and it seems not to be displaying according to CQS. As near as I can tell, it's displaying as my default categories do---Show -1 posts per page, ordered by date ASC.
I've tried moving it up to a category rather than a subcategory, and that corrects the problem. However, when I move my blog category down and make it a subcategory, it displays properly---so, the problem isn't that CQS doesn't respond to subcategories. It seems just the one subcategory isn't responding.
Since cat_mim has a custom template, right now I'm forcing the posts to display DESC by adding a query---but that doesn't solve only wanting five posts per page to display. Since this is a weekly challenge category, it has the potential to be quite long, so the post limitaion is kind of important.
I just know this is something simple I've overlooked. I'm at that crispy point where I just can't see it, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
