i inherited an account that is in wordpress.  It is for a law firm.  I had to add a new lawyer.  I copied a page for an exisitng lawyer and put in new pic, new bio, etc.  I cannot figure out how to change the permalink.  It keeps saying the original lawyers name.  When I click edit and type in correct name for this page, it adds a number on the end.  I am now up to 3.  Not sure how to fix this.  Here is a screen shot.

WHen I mouseover "Pages" all I see is All Pages, Add New and Relation Tags.  I don't see a trash filter.

Do i disable permalinks on the one page in question or site wide?
Do I have to publish with this change and then change it back?

My programmer got it to finally take the new permatlink address that I was not able to add.  He said there was some weird funky caching going on with this site.  Glad it is working now!
