#12646 closed enhancement (duplicate)

alert user if trying to set a permalink to the same as something in trash

If I create a page, then trash it, then create another page or post with the same permalink WordPress won't let me use it. Instead it will add a -2 to the end of the permalink. From a UI standpoint it would be nice if WP alerted the user the reason why the slug can't be used.

I had this happen to me yesterday and it took me a few to realize the permalink I was trying to create was in the trash so I couldn't use it. I could see other users having this same issue.
