I've read varying things on the internet regarding the best permalink structures and have a question.. The WordPress docs seem to indicate that using the /%postname%/ permalink structure is fine as of ver. 2.0. However, I've read advice from people written well after the release of version 2.0 indicating that on blogs with many posts the the /%postname%/ permalink structure is horribly inefficient (due to database querying I imagine). What's the truth??
I have a static front-page with the blog address at mysite/blog and would like to use "/blog/%postname%/" as my permalink structure but would be fine changing it if I'm going to set myself up for performance issues down the road. Thanks.
