This means that you won’t have any problems with removing permalinks and all that. Just feel free to organize to your heart’s desire. Your only limitation will be that the basic license only allows posts to be placed in folders. 

The plugin creates these virtual folders for your benefit. They have no direct effect on the files themselves. The plugin just helps you organize your files in a very convenient manner. The selling point for this plugin would be the Dynamic Folders. These are folders that can be organized based on the filters you set. The best part? You don’t even have to make them yourself. Just enable the option after installing and let the plugin do the work.
