Link to main loop from static front page (5 posts)

    I am running WP 2.0 and using the static-front-page plugin.
    How do I link to the main loop (which shows x-number of posts from all categories) that happens normally (i.e., without the static-front-page plugin)? With the static front page, it seems there is no way to link back to the main loop.

    yes, that's the whole point in the plugin: it bypasses the loop and returns the home page instead.

    Right, but I still could use some help with my question: Is there a way to link back to the main loop from a static page?

    For example, it *is* possible to click on a category link and have x-number of posts from *that category* show up via the loop. What I need is a link that will loop through *all categories* when clicked. I hope that makes sense. Thanks in advance for any clues or pointers.

    Does this help?

    Look at the notes under "Adding a Mini-Loop"

    :)
