Support » Requests and Feedback » Bug? – Taxonomy Terms – Multiple with same slug and name in same taxonomy.
5 years, 7 months ago
Found pattern which applies to both wordpress.com and wordpress.org versions:
Add tag “test” and then “test” = error – expected
Add tag “Test” and then “Test” = no error – why?
Add tag “tEsT” and then “tEsT” = no error – why?
Add tag “test” and then “Test” = no error – but I suspect that is by design.
When multiple occurrences of a term exist it is not possible to assign the term to content. The term is simply omitted on publish / update.
Check the taxonomy page to see if you have all those listed with different slugs or not.
I have been experimenting a little and it seems random as some share the same slug and others don’t. But in any case it is not possible to use the tag until conflicting ambiguities are removed.
Also, when multiple case variations of a tag exist, it is not possible to use the case specific variations even though they are in fact added.
I believe that the problem lies within the “Post Tags” page, not within the “Add Post” page.
