I want to have all my blog posts have the structure http://mysite/blog/blogarticle1 but I want the pages to have the structure http://mysite/page1 (no "blog" in there). I see how to include "blog" in the permalink settings but I'm not sure if those settings apply to the pages as well (which I don't want). Please advise. Thanks!! :-)
One way to handle this would be to set your permalink settings to /%category%/%postname%/ and just assign all of the blog posts to a category of "blog"
