how do I link to recent posts (2 posts)

    I am setting up a website where I am using wordpress to manage the site.

    http://www.grannygears.com

    I have everything working the way I want except for one thing.

    I want to make my WEBLOGS menu item link to the most recent posts, the same display as the default setup shows for the main page.

    I know how to change the link in the theme header but I can't find what the link should be.

    I am using the home-page-control plugin to make the memorial page show up as the main page.

    Even when I uninstall and delete the plugin, I get an error and can't get back to the original main page that shows the recent posts.

    I had previously deleted the pages that come with the default set-up. Is that the problem?

    How do I fix it without reinstalling again?

    Thanks!

    ok, I found the answer.

    One of the home-page-control plugin options is to set the blog directory name.

    I made that be weblogs.

    Then I also had to add that to the permalink virtual site structure.

    So my custom permalink structure now looks like this:
    / /weblogs/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/

    Seems easy now that I know what a permalink structure is!!!!
