Is there a way to set a url for a page, as per the following example:

I want to change this url: http://richardclunan.com/?page_id=2

To: http://richardclunan.com/copy-critiques

Is this possible?

(I clicked Permalink Settings and specified 'copy-critiques' as Category Base, but this didn't do the trick...)

Thanks, Richard

Any permalink setting(exception to default) uses that exact structure for pages, there's nothing special you need set, simply choose any permalink option aside from default(in Admin > Settings > Permalinks). – t31os Aug 7 '11 at 16:20

you can set the permalinks to %postname%, however this would change the permalinks for the whole site;

and you can set the individual page permalink, which is normally derived from the page title, when you edit the page.

btw: pages don't have a category base.
