I've seen this issue addressed in other posts. but nothing suggested has helped me resolve this problem! I've got a page called Events, but the permalink is "events-2" and no matter what I do, I cannot get it to change to just "events." I've deleted every single page and post in the trash, so it's not that there's another page called "events" somewhere. This is making me crazy!
Here's a link to the page in question (the site isn't live yet): http://firstccsj.org/wordpress/events-2/
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
