I have a small ecommerce site in Wordpress and I am having some difficulties in getting the right permalink structure.

Basically, for basic pages it should look like : domainname.com/page_title. Other post types should have the structure: domainname.com/post_type_slug/item_title. Well, everything is fine except for the blog posts (I want it to show domainname.com/blog/post_title).

Having the permalink setting as %postname%, I get domainname/post_title. On the other hand, /%category%/%postname%/ returns domainname.com/category/post_title. And obviously, entering /blog/%postname% won't work either because that would affect the permalinks of other post types.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

You don't specify if you're using regular WordPress pages/posts or if you're using a plugin such as WP e-commerce or WooCommerce. Can you clarify this? – Stephen Nov 4 '12 at 14:09
