I can't believe I did not find the right function for this: I just want to retrieve the blog index url from a template.

My homepage is a static page. I am not looking for bloginfo('url') because it gives me my root url (/). I am looking for mysite.com/Blog

I am thinking about getting it via get_permalink($mypageid) but it is a bit dirty.


if you are referring to the 'posts page' as set under dashboard - settings - reading:

if( get_option( 'page_for_posts' ) ) { 
  echo get_permalink( get_option( 'page_for_posts' ) ); 
} else { 
  echo home_url();

<?php echo home_url(); ?> <-- Set in Settings > General > WordPress address

<?php echo site_url(); ?> <-- Set in Settings > General > Site address

  • Hello. Thank you for answering but both snippets you gave link to the site home, not the blog home. – Paul Etienney Jun 6 '13 at 9:32
  • So set it to whatever you need it to be in your General Settings page. – Marc Dingena Jun 6 '13 at 9:36
