How do you get the link to the blog url when using a static home page? Something like: get_bloginfo(‘blog’) but that is not in the cards… thanks.

<?php echo bloginfo('url'); ?>/blog/

That only works if you name your blog page “blog”. How do you get it dynamically?

Hard to believe that there isn’t a code for this. Best I can find so far is:

if( get_option('show_on_front') == 'page') {
    $posts_page_id = get_option( 'page_for_posts' );
    $posts_page = get_page( $posts_page_id );
    $posts_page_title = $posts_page->post_title;
    $posts_page_url = get_bloginfo('url') . '/' . get_page_uri( $posts_page_id );
}
else $posts_page_title = $posts_page_url = '';

It seems that there should be a better way.

How about just

<?php echo get_permalink( get_option( 'page_for_posts' ) ); ?>

Well that seems easy now. Perfect. Thanks!
