Blog Address URI changes both Posts and Page base URI? (6 posts)

    When changing the "Blog address (URI)" in 'Options > General', this sets the slug for *all* WP generated pages (except the home page). It is possible to have this *just* for the blog posts/categories etc, and not Pages?

    i.e. is it possible to have:

    http://mydomain.com/ (homepage, WP index.php)
    http://mydomain.com/blog/2006/etc/etc/
    http://mydomain.com/page/

    I can't see how to stop pages inheriting the blog permalink prefix too. Any ideas?

    Semingly your WP install is in a subfolder (blog) - in that case the answer is no. Pages will display at example.com/blog/page-title

    Thanks for the quick reply, moshu. Maybe I didn't explain clearly enough though.

    WP is installed in the root. But I'd like the WP-generated "Pages" as domain.com/[page] and the blog-related pages as domain.com/blog/etc.

    But fiddling with the permalink options I can't understand how this is done.

    Is it on the blog linked to your name from here?
    Then you have it:

    Moshu, no this is not a WP blog. I'm making the transition to WP, so want to recreate the same structure. How can I get this with WP?

    I have installed WP in the root or my test domain. I want WP pages to effectively remain in the root, but the blog itself to have "/blog/". But changing the "Blog Address (URI)" option changes the path to the WP generated Pages too.

    Aha! I finally found a fix tucked away in the WP documentation. Thanks for the initial help, and apologies for not explaining it clearly from the start.
