Using 'nextpage' on static home page (2 posts)

    As my home page, I use a static page which I want to paginate, using 'nextpage'.
    However, when I click the links to the different pages, I get a 404 error.
    Pagination works fine on other pages, the different links looking like this: http://domain.com/pagename/1/, http://domain.com/pagename/2/, etc.
    The problem only exists with the home page. The links created (http://domain.com/1/, http://domain.com/2/, etc.) are not recognised.
    I'm not sure I made myself clear (English is not my mother tongue), but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, this appears to be WordPress defect. I've run into the same issue in WordPress 2.8.4.

    When I have a static home page, the "paginated post" feature adds the numeric page numbers to the end of the URL, but it doesn't appear to properly be able to paginate a static home page. A 404 is received.

    WordPress should recognize that the site has a static home page and apply the proper pagination to that static home page based on the page number appended to the URL.

    Not sure how to report a defect, but I'll go figure it out and try and get this reported.
