Hello I created a brand new blog, and installed 2.1 directly in the root of my domain.
I want to have a menu structure that has static pages, and one page will be the blog. My menus are laid out as Home | Services | About Us | Contact Us | Blog.
I find that if I leave the permalinks set to "Default" then the static page work find. However, if I switch the permalinks to "Date and name based" then the pages stop working and it will always default to the Home page.
