When you create a page, post, or other content item within your site that has the same name as another item already created, WordPress will automatically append a -2 to the end of it. For example, if you have an about page already created, and you create a second page titled about, your URL for the new page will be https://sitename.wisc.edu/about-2/. This document will walk you through the process of renaming any Permalink or Slug values that you want to.
Updating Your Permalink (Slug)
- Click on the Edit button next to the Permalink.
- In the field that appears, you would change or update the editable text.
- Once you've done that, click the OK button to the right to update this change.
