[resolved] Editing tag also edits category (2 posts)

    I am in the middle of updating my site and I wanted to change the name of a category but in doing so changes the name of a tag and this also happens the other way around.

    I had the category ‘Featured’ with the slug ‘featured’ but I also had a tag with the same names.
    Today I went to change the category to ‘Features’ and also the same for the slug but in doing so, it believes it is linked to the tag of the same titles.

    I tried editing the tag secondly; simply entering a bunch of random of letters but this changed the title and slug for the category.

    Is thre anyway possible to unlink or change the values so they work separately as I need them too. Deleting and starting from scratch would take me a serious amount of time that I do not have so that is not an option. Is there a way in the database that I can edit the values?

    Thanks for all your help.

    I finally found a direct answer through Google that if this problem occurs then there is no way to fix it, been a bug with WP for a long time, so I am going another direction.
