    HI,

    On my new website whatcandiabeticseat.info a couple of the pages have -2 on the end of the permalink.

    I go into edit to remove it, it allows me to remove the -2 but when i ok to save it, it doesnt save the change. it just remains with the -2 on the end of it.

    I have not created and deleted these page names previously?? And cant see any other differences to my other pages?

    I found previous post on this but it was unresolved.

    Thanks

  • It’s because that particular permalink has already been used once for whatever reason.

    Are there any pages/posts within your trash? If so, empty your trash and go back to edit the permalink. It should now work.

    It’s caused by that particular permalink being in your database already, so it adds a -2 to the end.

    Thanks Emphacy
