Support » Plugin: Ultimate CMS » rename an existing taxonomy

  • Resolved jenciso


    Hi Xydac

    First of all, thank you!

    I have this taxonomy manager in use in multisite, and have cloned an existing (and perfectly working) site to make a sister sites in other languages.

    But I cannot rename an existing taxonomy. Is this possible?
    If not from UI, can I change directly in DB? Where?

    thank you again


    PS: this is a bit of crossposting: have posted on your blog these days (if you answer on one place, I’ll repost on the others!)

    First of all i don’t understand the reason for changing the name of a taxonomy. you can still change the labels and query var and rewrite rules as well without changing the name. I’d recommend doing that.

    Further, i’ll tell you a workaround for doing this…
    1. register for xydac sync service by getting the api key from my site.
    2. then sync the taxonomy.
    3. then try to install the same taxonomy.
    4. as the taxonomy already exists it will ask you for a different name, there you are you have just copied the taxonomy to a brand new one.

    Note : consider buying if you find this helpful as you are using this across multiple sites 🙂

    Hi again,
    thanks for all your help.
    Finally I understood I didn’t need to rename the taxonomy – it’s just the internal name…
    I did exactly what you recommended: changed the label and rewrite rules, so the users can have a term in their own language, but the tax is still named the same.

    Thanks a lot for all your help again

    just a reply to your note: I definitively would pay for this plugin, but it’s used in only one non-profit page and I’m not making any money on it either ( if you would want to see the use of it)
