I am having URL issue

I have a page currently located at: https://sc***ch.co.uk/holiday-clubs/half-term/19-2/ but I want the url to end /19.

It seems something is already there, but I dont know what, that is why it has been given /19-2

    Hello Benji

    It seems there is a GUID entry in the database. I am not 100% sure, but I can check if you want. But then, I will need your cPanel details.

    You can send me cPanel login privately in the following format:
    1. Please go to https://premium.wpmudev.org/contact/#i-have-a-different-question
    2. Select "I have a different question" if not selected
    3. In subject line put "Attn-Ashok" (this will ensure that the email is assigned to me)
    4. Provide the wanted details.
    5. Add the thread link in the message so that I can track.

    Have a nice day!

    I did a bit of digging and managed to solve this...

    I found out that some time ago they made WP Core add -2 to all pages that had numeric slugs. There are multiple reasons for this, sometimes because of permalink structures using years, months and days. Or in this case because of the feature where you can add multiple inner pages to a page using <!--nextpage-->, which uses the pages url, /the inner-page number, this is why it was directing me to the parent page.

    I found a plugin which although outdated, fixed the issue and allowed me to change the URL to /19.

    Thanks for your help,

    P.S. Sorry for the lack of info in the original ticket, it was not myself who submitted it.
