[resolved] plain text in start of custom permalink structure (4 posts)

    I recently realized it is not recommended to put %category% as the start of a custom permalink structure. So I decided to type my own plain text:

    /my-text/%postname%/

    and this worked, so I was wondering if what I've done will be fine, or will it cause problems? I am avoiding the use of %category% since the codex says it will slow down the site if I have a tone of posts. So, if adding plain text there will solve this (as apposed to using the post ID or another %), then I'm happy.

    I'm just looking for some input, or someone knowledgeable to tell me this is a fine way to write custom permalinks. thanks!

    It may cause problems in the future if you ever add a directory to your site called /my-text/ , but you should be fine otherwise.
