    I am using a static home page which has some content which I will update manually every few weeks and below that I would like to have a list of recent post excerpts. What would be the best way to do this?
    Is it necessary to create a separate page template with 2 loops?

    you can run query_posts to get the recent post excerpt

    consider a plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/posts-in-page/

    although, in general, using a page template would allow more freedom for formatting the recent posts.

    Thanks for the replies to my question. I don't like using plugins unless I have to so I just used a modified version of my page.php template. I'm just have to play around with the code a bit now to get it working how I want it.
