Permalink names

  1. Hi All

    I have recently sorted out the Permalinks on our company site - there is one though which I can't change to what I want it to be.

    Before I did this whilst building the site I ended up with two pages created both called Downloads - I put content into the second one and this is the one thats live, I just deleted the first one as not needed.

    Now I have put permalinks in, it has put that page as /downloads-2 , I guess default as it was second one made. If I try and change to just /downloads it won't accept it, a though that name already exists. (please note I can change to other words but I would like that one)

    Is there any way I can solve this, because I don't have the first page created but assume this has had /downloads assigned to it.

    Does this make sense - hope someone can help me...many thanks in advance.
