Wordpress forces verbose page rewrite rules when posts permalink start with a static string
|Reported by:||Ryan_B||Owned by:|
I have recently come to notice that while my permalink structure for posts starts with a static string the permalink is /blog/%postname% that forces the use of verbose page rewite rules, just like how using /%postname% or /$category%/%postname% would.
However use of a static string to start the posts permalink should not require verbose page permalinks to work.
I think the issue is that WordPress recognized that /%year% or some other numeric value isn't starting the permalink so it assumes that verbose page rewrite rules need to be activated.
