Is it a good idea to design a permalink structure from scratch?
The requirements to the structure are as follows:
- Pages to be referenced by their structure
- Posts to be referenced by category and date
- Archives only
available by category (
example.com/category-slug), by category and year (
example.com/category-slug/2013) by category, year and month (
example.com/category-slug/2013/07) and by tag (
- All other links, like comments, feeds, trackbacks, pagination, archive by author and day, attachments are to be disabled.
Is it a better idea to create a new structure following these requirements or to modify an existing structure? In case of a new structure, how does one go about the permalink setting in WP admin? They are site-specific, and the theme needs to override them.
