    Hi. I deleted a page on my site 2 weeks ago but if I do a search on the WordPress built in search box the page is still there. It’s un-editable because the page doesn’t exist. If you click the link it goes to a page not found (it is 410 permanently deleted in my htaccess file). So how do I remove it and stop my users finding it please?
    I have cleared all caches on WordPress.

    Have you emptied trash for both pages and posts?

    Many thanks Steven. I had checked the bin (empty) but I forgot to check the pages as I only have a handful of pages as opposed to posts. I just found it on pages and deleted it permanently now 🙂
