WordPress will only open individual pages in the index.php template. I have tried for a long time, unsuccessfully, to get it to open them in my single.php template, but it refuses.
Interestingly, this seems to be happening in the default themes also (in fact, the single.php page I'm currently trying to get working might just be a copy from the default theme).
Can anyone tell me why this is? And how to fix it?
Here is a text version of my single.php file: http://backstar.com/wpsinglephp.txt
Note: single.php is in the same directory as my index.php template in its theme folder
