  • When using the non-permalink url for each of these:

    http://crime-stoppers.us/?p=5203
    and
    http://crime-stoppers.us/?p=5197

    We get to the right posts.

    Also note the -2 in the slug on the Nut/Candy post…
    This happens when a post is trashed and not deleted and a post with the same slug is created (slugs must be unique) or two posts with same slug exist at same time.

    My thought is that a redirect was setup for the trashed post, prior to it being trashed, and this is ‘confusing’ your redirection plugin

    I saw the -2 earlier and permanently deleted the original post (noting that probably the client has done just what you said as far as creating duplicate posts).

    Also, this client doesn’t have access to the redirect plugin, so that’s not a choice.
