Making a blog page template

Hello,

I am using a static home page. I am trying to have a specific page template that will display the latest posts. How can this be done the most practical way.

Thanks

    Hi there!

    Great question. The answer, though, is theme dependent with respect to the details. Essentially you are talking about making a Page of Posts which is done by modifying page templates. The Wordpress Codex explains more on this at:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#A_Page_of_Posts

    Each theme will have a different set of page templates and sometimes it is easy to just copy one and rename it in the header info and the filename to get the desired effect. Other times it can be a little tricky. How about you give it a go and if you get stuck let us know! Either way, it'll be important to know which theme you are working with.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you get stuck somewhere.

    Cheers,
    Paul
