Normally it is not possible to have a page slug (the page’s name in the URL) that is a number. For example this will not work:
yoursite.com/about/2/. That URL conflicts with paged content feature where you can posts and pages with multiple pages of content by adding
<!--nextpage--> within your content.
This plugin allows you to have pages with numbers as slugs by giving up the ability to have paged content pages which isn’t a big deal as most people don’t use paged content pages anyway.

Interested in development?
- Ditch all of the old fragile hackery of this plugin in favor of just hooking into the WordPress function that ensures that slugs are unique. It’s what was adding the
-2suffix in the first place.
- Update for WordPress 4.4’s rewrite rules.
- PHP 7 compatibility by renaming class constructor. Also drops unneeded references.
- Update for WordPress 3.3’s rewrite rules.
- Re-add the
save_postfilter after fixing the slug incase multiple posts are updated in one pageload.
- Recoded for WordPress 3.0+. WordPress now won’t let you manually enter a numeric slug — it will prefix “-2” onto the end of it so that the page is viewable. This new plugin version works around it.
- Initial release.
