I have a page with the blog template.
The Genesis > Theme Settings > Blog Page Template
setting for Number of Posts to Show is not working. I set it to two and 10 still show.
Anyone experience this bug?
The setting in WordPress > Reading Settings > Number of Posts still works.
This actually isn't a bug, but the Genesis blog page template is, for all intents and purposes, deprecated.
The settings in Genesis control the number of posts on a Page with a template set to the Genesis blog template.
The settings for WordPress control the page set as your posts page through the WordPress reading settings. *This is the way I'd recommend you set up your blog. Don't create a page, then make it the posts page by using the Genesis blog page template.
Hopefully that should give you a clearer picture as to what settings are controlling what.
Here's a more in-depth look than I've put together on the differences and the reason you shouldn't use the blog page template.
Good advice. I read that article one time. It's been awhile since I deployed a genesis site w/o a front page blog.
