Permalink Control

Hi,

A few questions about controlling users’ permalink settings:

1) I know you have a plugin that hides the Permalinks menu item. But, before doing this, is there a way to set the desired permalink setting that all sub-sites will inherit? Can I use the New Blog Template plugin for this? (I mean, is that one of the settings that is inherited?)

2) Or is there a reason to give users control over their permalinks. I know that different people have different opinions on permalinks for SEO, etc., so they might not like any restrictions.

3) If we do set permalinks for everyone, which setting is recommended?

Thanks,

Mark
