I tried searching, so if this has already been asked I apologize. Please post the link if it has.
I have insalled the Home Page plugin that allows the use of a static page with "home" as the default page. I love this feature as I'm trying to use WP as the backend for my main website (service company) and will have several static pages (including the home page).
However, I would also like to display the most recent posts at the bottom of the static content on the static "home" page. Is this possible through a custom template (you can assign the home page it's own template)?
If so, what code would I need to use and where would I need to put it? I'm fairly experienced with PHP, CSS, etc. so I can edit any files neccessary. I just haven't the time to go through the files line by line to try and figure it out. If anyone else has encountered this I'd appreciate any help possible.
BTW, I know I can simply edit the index page and put static content in there w/out using the plugin. I want to be able to edit the home page text through wp-admin.
