Category in 2.9 differs from previous versions? (4 posts)

    Guys,

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/344275

    Here I'd been wondering about some strange behavior. Now I notices in my database posts a field called post_category

    In a fresh install with 2.9 that field does not exist in the newly create posts database.

    Definitely don't exist and might this be the reason why there is not the non-differentiation issue between tags and categories so that they can have not identical slugs?

    When did that change? And why?

    The post_category column is no longer going to be used if i remember correctly, it was placed ready for part of a feature that never happened, or it's redundant, one or the other, i remember reading a Trac ticket for it.

    It's nothing you need worry about, Category data isn't stored in the posts table.

    Hm, so why can't my cats and tags have identical slugs anymore?
