Quite a few times when building a WordPress theme, mostly those being built for clients, it’s handy being able to get the URL of the blog dynamically, so no matter what changes in the future, that link will always work. Here’s how you can do exactly that with get_option():
// Get the blog page ID $blog_id = get_option('page_for_posts'); // Get the blog page URL get_permalink($blog_id);
<!-- HTML link version --> <a href="<?php echo get_permalink(get_option('page_for_posts')); ?>">Blog</a>
