    Are any errors being shown when saving?

    Hi there… yes i trying just to update one word in the url… once i do this and hit save, the original url returns and this error comes up…

    ERROR: This Pretty Link Slug is already taken. Check to make sure it isn’t being used by another pretty link, post, page, category or tag slug. If none of these are true then check to see that this slug isn’t the name of a file in the root folder of your wordpress install.

    surely this shouldnt happen if i am just updating it?

    thanx

    Steve, I do my best to get here as often as I can. What slug are you trying to use? Also, have you made sure that nothing else on your site is using that slug (posts, pages, categories, tags, media attachments, menu items etc)?

    We have no other use of the slug.

    the slug has been used solely by the pretty link.

    i tried to update the target url in the pretty link,

    and we get the above error…

    It’s as if we can’t update the pretty link…

    this is our pretty link http://www.icloudlogin.com/MacKeeper

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Would it be ok to delete it and recreate the pretty link with the same slug?

    No, there must be something on the site with that slug. Can you submit a ticket using this form here and just reference it to Paul and provide a link to this thread. I don’t make it to the WP forums as often as I’d like to.
