[Resolved] Confused about: This slug already exists and will cause problems.

  • In my Comic Easel config under custom post type it says: “This slug already exists and will cause problems. Change it.” It is the bog-standard word “comic”, which I have used since day one and don’t particularly want to change. I don’t understand why it would now say that. I haven’t really changed anything recently except to add a child theme, which I have not edited yet. I also am new to websites and don’t really understand the error (it scares me). My site is bubbleandsqueeeee.com if that helps.
    Any help would really be appreciated.

    It means you already have a slug named “comic”; either change that slug to something else or rename this one to something else

    Thanks. Is there any way for me to find where that other slug named comic might be? As far as I know I haven’t duplicated it. Might it have something to do with my child theme duplicating it? Also thanks so much for the really great theme/themes. They really are super user friendly and have made my life a breeze. 🙂

    Check posts -> tags or posts -> categories .. and see if maybe you have a category or tag with the slug of comic ? .. if you look you will see the “name” and the “slug” . you want to make sure that there isn’t duplicate slugs for ‘comic’

    Thanks. You are 100% correct. That’s where it is. I will sort it out immediately. I really appreciate the help. Have a great day.

    🙂
