I've found the if_home and if_front_page to be potentially useful..but..also found that it causes problems.

Current setup is that in the index.php file I have some static content followed by the list of blog posts, limited to only 1.

When clicking on "older posts", it goes to /page/2/ as the URL, but its basically a repost of the home page.

I then did this:

if ( is_front_page() ) {
} else {

And also surrounded the static content in a similiar way

if ( is_front_page() ) {
// static content
} else {
// nothing at all

I also tried it with is_home function, but neither work. I just get a repeat of the home page on a different URL and the most recent post rather than a list of the 10 recent posts. Anyone know why and how to get it to work?

Well first off, I'd recommend you don't edit index.php as WordPress uses it for so many different things. Edits should be done using the Theme's functions.php file or create your own theme to suit.
