    I have a static page set for my home page, and several other wordpress 'pages' on a site, but I also need to have a blog section. Since the home page is a static page, is there any other way to have a page that shows the top ten posts?

    I know about the recent posts widget and all of that, I just need to have a page that shows the top ten posts, while still having a static home page. Is there any way to do this in WP?

    Thank you!

    simple...create a page called "blog" and leave it blank
    go to the settings page and set this "blog"page as your posts page,leaving the static home page intact as you have already done.
    then in the posts section of wordpress ....create your posts ...they will show up on the "blog" page

    everywhere...
    Exactly, what I was going to say. Wordpress templates all have "functions" when setting each page.

    What do you mean by Top 10. Most Recent, most commented, your choice, most viewed?

    I originally meant most recent (as the default WP site set up would do), but if you know how to order them by most commented, your choice, most viewed, etc. please let us know!

    Thanks!
