    I have noticed after deleting an original page in WordPress with lets say "your_domain.com/contact/" and then trying to recreate the same page with the same name, my WP is generating a (-2) at the end of the link, like: "your_domain.com/contact-2/. What I don't understand since the original page was deleted why word press it treating new pages as if the original still exists? How to I clean a WP cashes if there is such even a thing exists within WP? Thank you ahead of time for clearing this up for me.

    Empty your trash - WP still sees deleted pages so long as they are in the trash.

    You're welcome, and it's only "easy" after you know about - it was new news to me one time too :). Sorry you had to wrack your brain for so long - hopefully you learned a few other new things?!
