Subfolders are *not* Supported in the Pages Library in MOSS Publishing Sites

"When I create new pages on a site, they don't go into the subfolder I've created, they always go in the root of the library?" "How can I use the CQWP to find pages in a specific subfolder in the Pages list in my Publishing site?" "I'm having [insert just about anything] issue and I'm using subfolders in my ?pages library in my Publishing site. How can I fix this?" I get some sort of a variation of these three questions at least once every two weeks. In an effort to provide some sort of proactive support, I want to point people to a Microsoft knowledge base article that explicitly states that using subfolders in the Pages library within a Publishing site is not supported: » #948614 - New pages that are created in a subfolder of a Pages library of SharePoint Server 2007 are saved in the root of the Pages library [Updated 5/19/2008 @ 5p] Link fixed.

How can I use the CQWP to find pages in a specific subfolder in the Pages list in my Publishing site?

I’m having [insert just about anything] issue and I’m using subfolders in my ?pages library in my Publishing site. How can I fix this?
