This is driving me nuts and I'm hoping someone knows of a way around it.
Say I have a permalink structure of
/%postname%/ and I have URLs like
www.domain.com/blog/post-name/. So I go about linking and what have you out in the big bad internet.
But, now I decide I want to add a static home page. Say it's a page called "my page". Suddenly WP changes ALL my permalinks to look like
www.domain.com/blog/my-page/post-name/! So all the links I have created now point to the wrong place, and my plugin which does some things by retrieving the
post_id of the requested url, utterly breaks because that page no longer exists.
Why on earth the WP team would think this is a great idea is beyond me, I simply want to set a specific page to appear when someone visits the root of my blog, not insert that page into the path of all my links.
How can I disable this "feature" or otherwise work around it?
