Ok so under Settings > Reading, I set my blog home page. Unfortunately it's using a template that isn't made for my blog, is there a way to change this?
Also, I tried not setting a blog home page and just creating the template by hand, and this works however... When I click into a single post my url is example.com/2011/08/post-title. I want it to be example.com/blog/2011/08/post-title or even without the date if possible. Any way I can change that?
