Along the way I have created and deleted pages here and there trying to work out how to do stuff. And with some of those pages I have tried different template files too.
Now I have the third attempt at creating a page with the title "Poem" but the slug comes up as poem-2-2 or something like it. When I try to edit the permalink it just goes straight back to poem-2-2 or whatever despite only having one poem page.
I also notice that one of my plugins which has the option to include pages in the menu (WP book) has about 4 poem pages to check to omit.
Hope I can sort this out. I have tried reinstalling plugins, using a clean up plugin to clean the db but no joy.
