[Resolved] Paging fails when custom template used for home page

  • I have created a custom page template which I believe would be considered a “showcase” type in that it allows static text, but when viewed, includes a post stream (in all but one excluded category, specified using a custom variable). This template works correctly, including paging of the post stream. However, as soon as I designate the page to be my home page, the paging stops working: I get the 4 most recent posts (plus a sticky one) but when I click on “<– Older posts”, I do see “/page/2” appended to the URL (which is the site URL since this is the home page) but I still get only the same set of recent posts.
    Site URL: http://allsaintschelms-new.dreamhosters.com/
    Here is the code for the template:

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: X-Category
    */
    
    /* This example is for a child theme of Twenty Twelve:
    *  You'll need to adapt it the HTML structure of your own theme.
    */
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    	<div id="primary" class="content-area">
    		<div id="content" class="site-content" role="main">
            <?php
            /* The loop: the_post retrieves the content
             * of the new Page you created to list the posts,
             * e.g., an intro describing the posts shown listed on this Page..
             */
            if ( have_posts() ) :
                while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
    
                  // Display content of page
                  get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() );
                  wp_reset_postdata();
    
                endwhile;
            endif;
    
        $category = get_post_meta( $posts[0]->ID, 'category', true );
        $cat = get_cat_ID( $category );
    
        $paged = ( get_query_var( 'paged' ) ) ? get_query_var( 'paged' ) : 1;
        $post_per_page = 4; // -1 shows all posts
        $do_not_show_stickies = 0; // 0 to show stickies
        $args=array (
          'category__not_in' => array( $cat ),
          'orderby' => 'date',
          'order' => 'DESC',
          'paged' => $paged,
          'posts_per_page' => $post_per_page,
          'ignore_sticky_posts' => $do_not_show_stickies
        );
    
        $temp = $wp_query;
        $wp_query = null;
        $wp_query = new WP_Query( $args );
        ?>
        <?php if ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) : ?>
    
                     <div class="catsec">
    			<?php global $more; /* The loop */ ?>
    			<?php while ( $wp_query->have_posts() ) : $wp_query->the_post(); ?>
    				<?php $more = 0; // Display content of posts ?>
    				<?php get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); ?>
    			<?php endwhile; ?>
    
    			<?php twentytwelve_content_nav( 'nav-below' ); ?>
    
    		<?php else : ?>
    			<?php get_template_part( 'content', 'none' ); ?>
    		<?php endif; ?>
    
                     </div><!-- .catsec -->
    
    		</div><!-- #content -->
    
        <?php
        $wp_query = null;
        $wp_query = $temp;
        ?>
    
        </div><!-- #primary -->
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
