[resolved] "Sample-page" in Permalink Structure (5 posts)

    In a recent installation of WordPress I am running into something that I have never seen before. I have a static front page and a separate blog page for the site, but for some od reason, within the permalink for pages and attachment pages, the url contains "sample-page".

    So http://yoursite.com/sample-page/page-title is what all of the links show. I have no idea where this is coming from and have never experienced it before. Any advice? I have reset permalinks, disabled permalinks, deleted the htaccess and allowed wordpress to recreate it. All without success. Thanks guys!

    The sample page is pre-built into your theme, it seems. You can delete it or rename and use it for some useful page.

    I knew that. Just as there is a sample-post page. My question was regarding why it is included in my permalinks for other pages etc. But as it turns out it was a stupid mistake on my part, I had all of my other pages set as children of this page. It is corrected now. Thanks.

    well you just saved me a bucketload of troubleshooting as I just realized I had made the same mistake over here.. Although not sure how much of a mistake it is, if you change the title of this page from sample-page or soemthing else, or any page to something else wordpress should ask you also want to change the permalink for that page as well.
