Posts list with offset

If you have your blog configured to show just one post on the front page, but also want to list links to the previous five posts in category ID 1, you can use this:

 <ul>
 <?php
 global $post;
 $myposts = get_posts('numberposts=5&offset=1&category=1');
 foreach($myposts as $post) :
   setup_postdata($post);
 ?>
    <li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
 <?php endforeach; ?>
 </ul> 

Note: With use of the offset, the above query should be used only on a category that has more than one post in it, otherwise there’ll be no output.
