I am using 1.4.5 with SQL Server db. When I set some other page as the "Front page" the default.aspx page transfers to that page. Perhaps this is by design. But from what I can tell the "default.aspx" page is the only page that shows
the list of posts made to the blog. I want to use the blog but I don't want it to be the front page.
In attempting to troubleshoot what is going on I have been playing with a fresh install of 1.4.5 with XML db and I note that it does not have this same behavior. The default page is still accessible when it is not the front page. But once I add my theme
and connect it to by sql db the behavior changes. I dont see how my theme can be affecting this. So I'm wondering if the behavior is deferent between db and xml datastores. Or is there something else I must be overlooking?
