    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?

    another member asked the same question not long ago, I asked why there's a "blog" folder in their url, but I never got a responce. I've not seen that before. It's ussually a date (which referes to an archive folder) followed by the post slug or id. Do you know why you have a folder called "Blog" ?

    Many people install wp in a folder called blog.

    Go to settings and check your permalinks.

    ahah, I thought people were somehow installing the main index in a folder outside the wp install folder..

    'Blog' is a page on my site and it's set as the 'Posts page'.

    So when I post a blog post, it automatically appears at http://richardclunan.com/blog

    I arranged it like this just because it makes sense as the url for the blog.

    I have other static pages too.

    But I want each post to appear like this: http://richardclunan.com/blog/title-of-post -- I can't figure out how to do that.

    kmessinger,

    My Permalinks Settings page looks like this: https://skitch.com/richardclunan/ght1b/permalink-settings-richard-clunan-direct-response-fundraising-copywriter-wordpress

    I don't know if that's right...?

    are you using a custom structure? mine is default to show "Day and Name"
