“unused permalinks” (slug) – how to remove :
I was refreshing my portfolio (it’s been awhile) and tried to make a new page in WordPress.
Now the slug (permalink) I wanted was www.my-website.com/portfolio
I didn’t want to edit the old one, so I decided to make a new page.
But since I made a page with the same title in the past it gave me –> ../portfolio-2
So I deleted the first one I made… That didn’t help me one bit. Now I created a new page and slug became ../portfolio-3
You can surely understand that I was getting frustrated.
Solution > unused permalinks
It might be a silly thing, but I didn’t find any solutions on the internet (immediately)
It was actually quite simple getting rid of the duplicate setting of the unused permalinks
… Go to > “All pages” in “Pages” > Trash
and permanently delete all trashed pages. That’s it!
