    i am trying to change permalinks to /stuff/%category%/%postname%/ and category slug to /stuff

    but when i do this all posts start to return 404 error ? (category runs fine and other permalink structure also works for posts)
    what should i do ?

    is it because i am including stuff in both of them ?

    because i have also tried to change the word "stuff".
    but when ever i use same word both in the start of permalink and as a category slug ... posts start returning 404

    I have the same problem. I'm 90% certain it requires a change to be made to the .htaccess file to allow for mod_rewrite to change the permalink structure.

    It wasn't .htaccess...

    This suggests that similarities such as your stuff instance could cause 404s. I added in %post_id% and got mine working.
