When I post a blog post, the blog post doesn't appear with a separate url -- it just appears under http://richardclunan.com/blog and there's no button to edit the url when I'm on the Edit Post page.

How do i make blog posts have their own urls?

    Looks like there's something either wrong in your theme or, more likely, you have something funny set under Settings -> Permalinks. Jan 27, 2012 at 21:25
  • I'd like my posts to be at richardclunan.com/blog/name-of-post -- i'm not sure what to change in Permalinks -- here's what my settings are: img.skitch.com/20120127-pui92nan3ujf2fmjhyu6da375a.jpg

  • I just noticed the url in Permalinks read " /http:/richardclunan.com/blog " -- so there's a slash in the wrong place -- so i've changed it to this: skitch.com/richardclunan/ght8n/…

Set Permalinks (in settings) to /%postname%/, you set the blog location in settings->general, not in your permalinks. Permalinks builds on the Settings->General URL

  • thanks. I set 'Blog' as 'Posts page' at Settings>Reading. And at Permalinks I've now set it not as /%postname%/ but as /blog/%postname%/ -- is that the right way to do it?

  • No, you should have Settings->General->Wordpress Address read http://richardclunan.com/blog/ and Settings->Permalinks->Custom Structure should read /%postname%/
