    I am using only pages on my WordPress website.
    When I try to use other permalink setting like "Day and Name" or any other, I always have the same result : no date appear in the address but only my page names.
    This is ok for me as I only want page names to appear but :

    1) Is is normal?
    2) Navigation seams to be slower when I use another settings than the default one, wnat can I do to avoid that?
    3) Should I use a "Custom Structure" to indicate only page names, something like "/sample-post"?

    Thanks a lot, WordPress rocks!

    That's perfectly normal.

    Navigation seams to be slower when I use another settings than the default one, what can I do to avoid that?

    As soon as you use a permalink setting other than the default, you introduce a re-write stage - which could then could slow the site down (although it should be noticeable). What permalink structure are you currently using?

    Should I use a "Custom Structure" to indicate only page names, something like "/sample-post"?

    That really shouldn't be necessary.

    Hey Esmi, thanks a lot for the feedback!
    I am using the "Day and Name" structure, I thought that could slow the navigation (because no date appear: is it because I am using pages? May it take more time because it looks for a date?)
    +
    I have another question: when I select another permalink structure than the default one, the page names that appear in the address bar are the names page had when I first created them. How can I change these names? (I may want to change page names after its creation in the WP admin panel but address bar names do not change...).

    is it because I am using pages

    Yes. Only Posts will use the "Day and Name" structure.

    May it take more time because it looks for a date?

    In theory, yes, if you publish Posts. In reality, you're probably talking about microseconds, so it's not an issue of any real concern.

    How can I change these names?

    Edit the pages and change their titles. WP uses the page title to construct the relevant link text.

    Thanks a lot for your answers Esmi, concerning the page names, I already changed them but they keep page names thay had when I first created them... How can I change this? Should I go in the database?

    Concerning the loading time, it takes lots of time, what permalink structure are you advising me for pages?: "/sample-post"

    I wanna thank you for your excellent feed back, hope I'll have another echo ;)
