    I have looked all over this site for an answer I can use. That being said there seems to be a lot of solutions, but I am such a novice at this that most of it goes over my head……

    I want to add recent posts to my static home page. under the section that says “Upcoming Events” Website in question
    Someone on one of the forums suggested using the following code information.:
    “The easiest way to do this is adding to your static page a get_posts call.
    Here’s one example of a minimal Loop of that kind :
    global $post;
    $myposts = get_posts(‘numberposts=5&category=1’);
    foreach($myposts as $post) :
    <?php the_title(); ?>
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>”

    [Please use the code buttons when posting code here]

    The problem is I dont know where to put this code to show up on my page where I want it.

    Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    Thank you.
