Re-Building a Page - How do I pull this off? (3 posts)

    Hey All,

    OK...I feel a bit silly asking this but before I nuke my site I thought I should get some advice from 'those in the know'.

    I have this odd issue that when loading one particular page on our site, it drops you down towards the end of the page and not at the top. It's like an anchor has been dropped.

    I contacted the theme builder and he recommended I re-build the page. If I do this, won't is replicate the URL? Shall I replicate it, let WordPress name it and if it works, delete the old page and rename the URL of the new page the same as the old page?

    I can't seem to find out what the problem is and the dev has told me, "yea...I have seen that before. Re-build the page and it should go away".

    Thanks for any input!

    Hi Dave,

    One thing you could do is create a new page to test with, not having published it. Once you're happy with that, you can delete and crash your current page, permanently delete it from the trash, and then WP will allow you to change your new page's permalink so that it's the same as the old one. Do that, and publish it.

    You might have 60 seconds of that page not existing while you go through the Delete > Permanently delete > Rewrite permalink > Publish process, but it's a solution.

    I think Dave is right, that should work .
