I know, they can't be the same. I've changed the CPT name and slug, but the page slug is still adding -2 to the end.
This is my CPT code in the functions.php file:
$labels = array( 'name' => _x('Portfolio Item', 'post type general name'), 'singular_name' => _x('Portfolio Item', 'post type singular name'), 'add_new' => _x('Add New', 'portfolio-item'), 'add_new_item' => __('Add New Portfolio Item'), 'edit_item' => __('Edit Portfolio Item'), 'new_item' => __('New Portfolio Item'), 'all_items' => __('Portfolio Items'), 'view_item' => __('View Portfolio Item'), 'search_items' => __('Search Portfolio Items'), 'not_found' => __('No portfolio items found'), 'not_found_in_trash' => __('No portfolio items found in Trash'), 'parent_item_colon' => '', 'menu_name' => 'Portfolio' ); $args = array( 'labels' => $labels, 'public' => true, 'publicly_queryable' => true, 'show_ui' => true, 'show_in_menu' => true, 'query_var' => true, 'rewrite' => array('slug'=>'portfolio-item','with_front'=>false), 'capability_type' => 'post', 'has_archive' => true, 'hierarchical' => false, 'menu_position' => 5, 'supports' => array( 'title','editor','thumbnail','excerpt','custom-fields' ), ); register_post_type( 'portfolio-item', $args );
The CPT and CPT slug was originally "portfolio" but I change all that. However, when I try to edit the page slug of the Portfolio page it looks like this: /portfolio-2
I do not have any other pages in the trash with the /portfolio slug, all have been permanently deleted. What am I missing that is causing the page slug to not work? It's driving me crazy, and I can only assume that it's something simple that I'm overlooking.
Thanks so much for any help :)
