I am a new comer to Thematic, and I like it,

I wish to understand what I am doing wrong, I acquired this practice publish type (CPT) known as "Intranet" as well as in a webpage I wish to load a custom template to operate the loop using the query for showing these.

However when I attempt to alter the loop code on the page template, I only got a whitened page.

I attempt it in diferent ways:

<?php $intranet = new WP_Query( array( 'paged' => get_query_var('paged'), 'post_type' => 'intranet', 'posts_per_page' => 8 ) ); ?>
<?php while ( $intranet->have_posts() ) : $intranet->the_post(); ?>

and such as this

<?php global $wp_query;
query_posts("post_type=intranet");
while ( have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

Sometimes before with custom publish types to get this done, however in Thematic did not appears to operate. What's the proper way to do that in Thematic??
