I have my permalink structure setup as https://www.mysite.com/%postname%/
From memory it used to work like this…
If I created a page like https://www.mysite.com/example/ and then tried to create a post like https://www.mysite.com/example/ it would automatically change the URL to https://www.mysite.com/example-2/.
But I just did a little test, and that no longer happens. It allows me to create a duplicate post URL and when I visit that post it redirects me to the page.
Why has this changed? Is it something I did?
I tested this on an almost brand new site, disabled all plugins, and cleared out my functions.php, but it still happens.
