Static Homepage vs The Loop/ (2 posts)

    Howdy,

    What are the downsides of using a Static Homepage and other Static Navigational Pages? I'm using a HTML5 & CSS3 framework whose front-end editor seems to be affected by my usage of a Static Front Page. I don't quite understand the whole WordPress Loop (I'll go back to the Codex), but had the thought that Static Pages in general seem to place limitations on WordPress (I'm using 3.2.1). Do Static Pages run outside of the "Loop", need to added back into it, or are they 100% included in it?

    Sorry if this seems like a dumb question!

    The content of a Static Page is generally displayed by a Loop if it shows at all.

    The screen could be totally generated by the template code for the SP, or pulled from another source, but this is generally not the case.
