I have a set of templates in my default template group called "home".
These templates are "about", "contact-us", "membership" and of course "index".
Only the "index" template will display without the name of the group in the url.
FAIL: (404) example.com/about
FAIL: (404) example.com/home/membership
I have tested this with and without an "index.php" .htaccess re-write. No luck.
(Details: Brand new EE 2.6.1 install on stable cPanel server.)
I've never seen this happen before.
