WordPress static home page gives 404 error when paginated (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    My problem is this:

    I've set up a WordPress Blog for the first time.
    I have a static page set as home page which is quite a long article and getting longer!

    I've decided to break the article up into 2 or 3 separate pages. This is to make the article "sticky". People tend to dislike long articles when they have to scroll, so they leave to find easier reading.

    I've added the <!--nextpage--> tag (in html, not visual) and edited wp_link_pages in the template files.

    All works well on the initial page, but when I forward to page 2 I get an "Error 404 - Not Found" message.

    I have tried changing to 3 or 4 other themes, no luck.
    I have searched and tried everything I can find on Google and in forums.
    I have checked and edited my .htaccess file.
    I have reset my permalinks - they are set as custom (/%post_name%/).
    Setting permalinks to default causes a "Server Not Found" error.
    I have deactivated all plugins, should I delete them as well?

    I'm using Fluid Blue 1.7.2 by Srini G as a theme.

    Here are 2 URL's for my site, I created a second unedited page so people could see exactly where I'm coming from. The first is the unedited page, which I want to split up:

    Renegade Rescue

    The second shows the edited page, hopefully with the errors:

    Renegade Rescue-2

    I'm not exactly a newbie, I've built a website (self-coded, not wysiwyg) and I understand XHTML and CSS, but this problem has me beat!

    P.S. index.php and .htaccess files are in the server root directory,
    all other WordPress files are in a separate WordPress sub-directory.

    This is known issue. http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/9324
    Apply diff to post-template.php. Should work.
    I am newbie and just do not know how to apply diff automagically. Any help appreciated.

  3. This was applied to the 2.8 branch, so should be included in WP 2.9.2
