My homepage is setup to display "Latest Posts" on the bottom of the page.
I read http://codex.wordpress.org/Creating_a_Static_Front_Page and created a blank "Blog" page so that posts will appear on this page. New post content appears on the homepage "Latest Posts" and is hyperlinked to a separate page for each new post.
However, the blog page is not populated with the latest posts.
My WordPress is installed in the root folder so the WordPress url and Site url are the same. I think that WordPress' the latest posts .php file is called index.php. How do I add the correct url and code so that the blank "Blog" page pulls the latest posts?
