Cannot edit category description
If you permanently delete the first one from your Trash then the “2” will not appear in the URL. http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#permanently-deleting-a-post-or-page
Timethief, you are wonderful as always, but I don’t see any trash on my Categories page. Only the Posts, Pages and Comments. The link you supplied does not mention deleted categories either.
Hmmm … you are right. That only applies to posts, pages and media. I don’t know how a dynamic categories page gets a “2” at the end of the URL. I’ll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.
Thanks! Um, should I open a separate thread to ask how you got your username to link to your blog?
No. :) Here’s the answer to that question. 6
After looking into your account, I found that you have a tag called Buried Treasure so that why when you created the Buried Treasure category there was a “-2” add to the end of it.
If you want to remove that “-2” from the category page, then please:
1. Delete the Buried Treasure tag from your Posts > Tags page.
2. Delete the categories from your Posts > Category Page.
3. Then re-create the Buried Treasure category, and re-assign your posts to that category.
I see that you have the Category Page for Buried Treasure as well. Please note that would have be to reassigned as well.
I was able to create a “How to do it” category and tag both with the same slug. So there must be something else happening.
In any case I have decided to work around the problem, so you can call this topic resolved. But I think there is a bug.
Ok thanks. I’ll look into the issue and report back if I find anything.
