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"

  • So would my pages still stay as mysite/pagename (e.g. mysite/contact) then? It's not clerar to me if the Permalink settings are supposed to apply to pages as well as posts or just posts. Thanks for the help! :-)

  • Yes, the permalink setting do apply to pages. With the /%category%/%postname%/ structure, your pages will create a hierarchical permalink. mysite.com/page1/subpage/subpage/

  • @PNMG this is not a good suggestion... blog is not a category but a is a page in theory... making blog as category will give you problem in the future if the site wishes to change theme... Commented Jan 27, 2013 at 14:40
