    I have created a page, named it and then decided to delete it. Later I chose to make the page again and call it the same name as before. In the permalink I noticed that it named the page as if the page I deleted still existed. Ex. http://www.example.com/page-2
    I tried to edit the permalink and delete the -2 but it won't allow me to. Any suggestions?

    Thank you, I figured it out. If anyone else is experiencing this same problem with either pages or posts all you have to do is go to all pages or all posts and go to the top of the page where there is a trash link. click the link and it will display all the old pages or posts you then can choose permanently delete from the drop-down menu. Once deleted you can go back to the page or post permalink and get rid of the number attached to it. Ex. -2,-3,-4
