Re: adding content to the 1.2 default theme homepage
@Andy: In previous trunk versions I was able to use both a home.php template (/) and an index.php template (/blog/) but now I get a 404 when I go to /blog/.
Explanation: My theme is set up so home.php uses a custom query to show all posts tagged with the most recently added tag in a custom taxonomy (i.e. taxonomy “issues”, tag “Winter 2010 Issue”) while index.php is a normal WordPress homepage loop returning a paginated result set of all posts by date. This doesn’t work anymore since /blog/ (index.php) returns a 404.
