    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.

    Regards

    Mark

    Hi

    My apologies for this – I have a website http://www.mpsenergi.co.uk not a blog. I think I have been told I should have registered at wordpress.org.

    Thank you for replying, sorry again

    Hi Mark,
    You’re correct. that’s not a free hosted WordPress.com blog. You need to register a WordPress.org username account on the top right hand corner of this page http://wordpress.org/support/ so you can post to the correct support forum for your software.
    Best wishes with your site.
