Reading Settings > Front page displays > Posts or any page besides EVENTS page
Permalink Settings > Month and name
My events page > http://mysite.com/events/
My events page #2 > http://mysite.com/events/?page=2
I want to change my EVENTS page to be my HOME PAGE so...
Reading Settings > Front page displays > A static page > EVENTS
Permalink Settings > Month and name (the same)
My events page > http://mysite.com/
My events page #2 > http://mysite.com/?page=2 is redirected to http://mysite.com/2/ and Oops! Page not found.
The only way I can fix Scenario B is to change my permalinks back to the default which, I've since discovered, causes other problems with other plugins.
What I'm going to do in the mean time is go back to scenario A and try put a redirect to http://mysite.com/events/ so it becomes the home page but still uses /events/ .... It seems a shame that I can't use WordPress's inbuilt front page display with EM.
