There is a page on my wordpress site, let's say http://hostname.com/our-philosophy/ (even Google is indexing it) that I want to delete.

However I cannot find it on the "All Pages" menu, or in the "All posts" menu so I don't know what to do about it. It has the looks of a blog post with a link referenced to itself... Any suggestions?

  • Could be a post type, term or taxonomy archive; might be created by one of your plugins - many possibilities.

  • Have you tried switching to a default theme and deactivating plugins? If it disappears, you can then turn them back on one by one to determine where it's coming from.

  • You may even want to check on the server, in case the folder ("our-philosophy") actually exists and contains a page.

  • Our-philosophy is not a folder in public-html/ Nov 12 '19 at 20:28
  • I did create another page titled with the same name and the permalink saves as /our-philosophy-2/ so there is a missing link in some table. I barely have plugins, just Gutenberg (arrrg) and TablePress, so not their fault Nov 12 '19 at 20:29

A PDF file contained in the Media and with the same name, created this empty webpage that somehow was indexed by google
