Why does the false permalink created in page edit not let me change the URL?

  1. Adding a page to our blog creates an utterly pointless and counterproductive and downright obstructive permalink called https://en.wordpress.com/signup/?blog=1/ + the name of the page. It should be https:// + the permalink for our blog + the name of the page. When I type just such an URL in my browser's address field, I am indeed able to access the page. But when clicking the link for the page in the page widget while logged in or while an anonymous user accessing the blog, I get the infuriating signup page. Huh?
    Blog url: http://benjohnstoncomposer.wordpress.com/

  2. Sorry for the trouble!

    We identified and corrected the issue. The affected blogs are each being fixed individually.

    If yours has not been fixed yet, it should be in a few hours.
