I’m trying to create a page named “3” on my website under the parent “problems”, i.e. something like this http://doubleroot.in/problems/3/

But after publishing it, wordpress renames it to "doubleroot.in/problems/3-2/", which i think means that the link already exists. But it doesn’t. When I open that link, I do not get a 404 error. Instead, I get redirected to doubleroot.in/problems/, though the address bar shows doubleroot.in/problems/3/ and the breadcrumb shows “Home » Problems » Page 3”.

(You can try visiting the link above.)

This happens for any number I put in place of ‘3’. How can I go about fixing this problem?

Any help is appreciated.

    It looks like pagination is interfering here, as it uses integer numbers added to the url. – JHoffmann Feb 9 '17 at 19:21

  • I can't tell, pagination is not my speciality. – JHoffmann Feb 10 '17 at 11:47
