This solution answers this question from a member of WP Sites:
One thing I noticed with the site I am modifying compared to the new Genesis site is that when you use pagination on the main site you go from www.example.com to www.example.com/latest/1
Using Genesis you go from www.example.com to www.example.com/page/1
Is it possible to modify page to latest?
