    Hi All

    I have recently sorted out the Permalinks on our company site – there is one though which I can’t change to what I want it to be.

    Before I did this whilst building the site I ended up with two pages created both called Downloads – I put content into the second one and this is the one thats live, I just deleted the first one as not needed.

    Now I have put permalinks in, it has put that page as /downloads-2 , I guess default as it was second one made. If I try and change to just /downloads it won’t accept it, a though that name already exists. (please note I can change to other words but I would like that one to help towards keywords)

    Is there any way I can solve this, because I don’t have the first page created as its been deleted, but assume this has had /downloads assigned to it.

    Does this make sense – hope someone can help me…many thanks in advance.

    Look in your pages and see if there’s a page in the trash. The first downloads page is probably in there. If you empty the trash, then you should be able to change the permalink of the second one.

    Hi Christine

    You genius – thank you for helping out, that has been bugging me for a couple of days lol.

    It was right under my nose all this while!

    Thanks again

    Glad I could help Mark. I’m not sure I’m a genius. I have done that myself though. 🙂
