Pagination Issue on Customizr theme
Lidia is trying to get the home page to paginate posts - display 5 posts at a time. The Customizr theme seems to provide this option (see attached). But the number of posts per page seems to be the same as the "Show number of Posts" on the WP Reading settings page. That is, if you change one the other changes. Is this a bug in the theme?

Yeah, but if you go to the Front Page content, it links to the same setting. I don't see how pagination could ever work if it is updating number of posts to display (i.e. Settings>>Reading: "Blog pages show at most:").
I see others are complaining about this: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=customizr+pagination
I also see that Lidia opened a ticket: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/pagination-not-working-on-front-page-customizr-theme/

Thanks, Scott. I've traced the behavior to this point https://github.com/presscustomizr/customizr/blob/c6fcfa1475a1fbc9ac660ecc9a584d007fef262e/templates/index-no-model.php#L183, which returns true on archive pages but false on the home page. I don't know how to debug this further without extensive digging. I'll leave a comment on the wordpress.org ticket.

The theme author responded at https://wordpress.org/support/topic/pagination-not-working-on-front-page-customizr-theme/#post-13009712. In my tests, this fixed it - you have to explicitly toggle "Display navigation in your home page". Perhaps you could ask Lidia to confirm?
