#35936: Add validation for Custom Structure permalinks

 As a premium theme developer, we see many users confused by the ''Custom
 Structure'' option in the Permalinks settings screen. They often type in
 static paths without any structure tags - for example, typing in "About"
 which breaks all internal linking except their page which happens to have
 this slug.

 Please add to this settings box some level of validation so that users
 cannot save changes if their permalink structure contains no structure
 tags in the Custom Structure box. Consider including helpful feedback and
 a link to the ''Help > Permalink Settings'' dropdown found in this
 settings area for further reading.
