I have created a new pricing page that contains a new pricing table.

I renamed the old page Pricing to Pricing-old. Also deleted the permalink and hit OK so that the new permalink is set to /pricing-old.

I renamed the new page Pricing-test to Pricing. I deleted the permalink and hit OK so that the new permalink is set to /pricing.

In Appearance-->Menus, I completely removed the old menu item Pricing and saved. I then left and went back there, saw that there is now a Pricing and a Pricing-old. I added Pricing.

I saved everything.

For some crazy, crazy reason, the menu item Pricing which has the permalink /pricing, when you click on it, takes you to the pricing-old page!!! This is not at all intuitive. What do I do?

UPDATE What a MESS! I decided to just change the reference to the pricing table inside the old page instead of expect WP to do what it is supposed to do. I reversed the steps above. The result is continuous redirects resulting in an error page, and a site that no longer accepts new customers.

    Try deleting any trashed pages that could be relevant to the issue, regenerate permalinks, and if the site uses a caching plugin, clear the cache. Feb 26, 2018 at 3:23

Regenerate your permalinks. Resetting permalinks rebuilds your link structure for WordPress. Often, this process must be performed after migrating a WordPress website, or when troubleshooting 404 errrors. This is accompished by choosing a different permalinks setting, and saving it. Then putting the permalink setting back to the original setting and saving it again. This is a common step when Troubleshooting WordPress problems.

    Thanks very much. The Yoast Premium plugin was causing all of the redirects. Once those were deleted and the pemalinks regenerated, everything worked. Feb 26, 2018 at 13:04
