    I'm trying to alter the the permalink value for the %post% so it would also call the category within its value and so it won't do that annoying +2 +3 etc thing so anyone know where i can alter this at?

    I'm not sure I follow your exact thinking, but if you are after a
    custom permalink structure that includes /%category%/%postname%/ you would
    set those values here: Settings Permalinks SubPanel

    And here is a quick reference for Using "Pretty" permalinks

    In your WP admin panel, In the Settings → Permalinks panel, you can choose one of the "common" structures or enter your own in the "Custom structure" field using the structure tags.

    %category%-%postname%
    NOTE: "Starting Permalinks with %category% is strongly not recommended for performance reasons."

    I use: /%post_id%-%postname%

    also, if it's doing taht annoying +2 +3 thing, and you don't have other posts with the same name, its because you have versions of that post in the trash. Empty your trash from the edit posts screen and that will stop
