Not sure how else to title this one but for as long as Ive been using WordPress, if I create a page, for example the page name is blog, it creates a permalink of siteurl/blog. standard wordpress procedure right?
well if I need to delete that entire page for whatever reason, when I go to create a new page with the exact same name, the permalink it creates is siteurl/blog-3, for example.
Of course I dont want the "-3." If I just edit the permalink on that page, the "-3" or whatever it happens to be at that time, comes back after saving. How can I get rid of the appendage?
