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.

If WordPress adds numbers to the end of the slug, it's because it thinks the slug already exists somewhere.  Check the Trash and Drafts?

where is the trash located?
while I am working on it, this page in question is set to private.  maybe that makes a difference.

No, that shouldn't matter.

Trash is one of the filter options at the top of the All Pages list.

Something else to try, may be stupid, but disable permalinks (set to default), save it, then re-enable them.  Sometimes that clears stuff out.

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?

Disable permalinks site wide (only way to do it).  Don't worry about publishing the page.

The filter is on the All Pages menu, not the admin menu on the left.  Click All Pages.

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!
