    Did some searching and could not find an answer to this. I have never had this happen before and can't figure out how to make it stop.

    My permalink structure is just post name. Nothing fancy. For some reason when I try to make a post it wants to put a -2. So say for example my post title is make money online. Its saying website.com/make-money-online-2. I can't get it to stop putting the -2. I did have a post before that I deleted with the same title name. But I never actually posted it, I only saved the draft. It kept messing up so i deleted it. And now my permalink wants to put that -2 at the end. Even when I edit it to how I want it, it keeps putting in the -2.

    Any help with this would be awesome, thank you ladies and gents.

    Never seen that but here's something you could try.

    Empty the trash.

    Go to Edit Posts
    Click on Trash (it's in the same row as All, Published and Scheduled)
    Delete all of it

    Sorry, I have not experienced that myself. I use one of the following permalink structures:

    /%category%/%postname%/ (short, seo)

    http://yourdomain.com/2010/04/sample-post/ (a default option/choice)

    Good luck!

    Weird. You can manually set the permalink if all else fails. Click change permalink while editing the post. Posted via Mobile Device

    Thanks a lot blackhit. Emptying the trash fixed the problem. I didn't even know there was a trash. Thanks again!
