Permalinks in WordPress should always be unique. WordPress doesn't allow different Posts or Pages to have the same URL. Because of that, WordPress will insert a suffix number at the end of the actual Post/Page URL.
First Page URL:
Second Page URL:
If there are one or more Posts/Pages with the same
slug WordPress will add a numbered suffix after the actual Post/Page URL.
That indicates that at least one Post or at least one Page uses the same
Remove the suffix number from the page's/post's URL
Ensure that there is no other published post or page with the same
Check the Trash Page and ensure no post or page uses the same
Ensure that no image that is uploaded to the Media Library (WordPress →Media Library) uses the same
nameas the Post/Page's name that displays the suffix number
If any of the above is true, set unique names for those Pages/Posts.
