[resolved] Can't change WooCommerce category name or slug (4 posts)

    If I try to change the name and slug of a WooCommerce category, I get an "Item Not Updated" error message. I think this only happens if the category has any products assigned to it; empty categories seem to allow changes.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to change category names once items are assigned to the category? Or is there something else wrong that I'm missing.

    I am now having the same issue, except the designer before created multiple categories for "mens" clothing so now it keeps renaming the slug "mens-2, mens-3" etc. If i find a work around i will let you know.

    Currently there are no products in that category either.
