I'm pretty sure that you can't have two separate permalink structures, right? (Like one way for Pages and Categories, and another for posts?)
I'm assuming that can't be done.
So I was hoping someone could offer up an alternative suggestion for me. I know you *can* use
%postname% in your permalink structure, but doing so opens up the possibility of issues if you name a Page, post, and/or category with the same name.
However, I need for my URLs to look like so:
http://www.sitename.com/about (for the "About" Page)
http://www.sitename.com/tools (for the "Tools" category)
http://www.sitename.com/3/2007/this-is-an-archived-post (for the posts)
Is there any way to accomplish such a thing? I guess I won't say it's *impossible* to do it via .htaccess, but I'm not familiar enough with it to manually code my .htaccess files to specify the date-and-name-based for posts only, and just name-based for Pages and Categories. Is there an alternate way to accomplish this, like a plugin?
If I knew what lines to edit in my .htaccess file, I'd give it a shot myself (in fact, I think I will!) but any input or suggestions anyone has would be appreciated.
