Removal of old slug / permalink
Posted on 2013-11-06
In wordpress I previously created a page with a permalink ending "contact". This page has since be deleted and trash has been emptied.
I have now created a new page and used the same permalink "contact". When this page is viewed from the frontend it is showing the old page and not the new page, even though the previous one has been deleted. I have read some articles about going into the mysql database and searching for the post name called "contact" in the post table. I have done this and deleted the record. Even doing this I am still seeing the old page.
Why is this happening?
Just so you know if I change the permalink to something else I can view the page correctly.
