    In the settings panel>custom settings, if I enter

    /%postname%/

    is that correct?

    I am using a child theme. I am advised not to make changes to the parent theme, so where exactly does this go?

    # BEGIN WordPress
    
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    
    # END WordPress

    Yes, /%postname%/ is a valid and good Custom Permalink Structure Tag to use.

    BPS handles .htaccess files for you and whether or not you have a Parent Theme or a Child Theme this does not matter. .htaccess files work independently of Themes and process code at a different level.

    .htaccess files are basically Server configuration files. .htaccess files are processed first before any other code on your website.

    Sorry for the delay, appreciate the follow up. Understood on the .htaccess files.

    Is the /%postname%/ a one-time, default entry, or do I have to manually use this with every post?

    WordPress Settings >>> Permalinks >>> Custom Structure >>> /%postname%/ is a one time setting. This setting affects all your permalinks sitewide forever or until you change this custom structure tag to something else.

    If I WordPress Settings >>> Permalinks >>> Custom Structure >>> /%postname%/,then I will be adhering to the BPS permalinks protocol - without further coding required?

    Yep, no further coding or settings are required.

    BPS actually works fine even with Pretty Permalinks. A long time ago (years) it did not. So out of habit and so not to confuse anyone I continue to state that Custom Permalinks should be used. The best practice is to use Custom Permalinks so it is a good thing in general to have folks do this anyway.
