Some of the terms on my site appear with the same exact slug, in multiple taxonomies.
For example: 'education' appears in both the 'department' taxonomy and the 'topic' taxonomy.
Now, I can't seem to modify or delete a term from one taxonomy without affecting the term in the other taxonomy.
- If I change 'education' to 'department-of-education' in the 'department' taxonomy, it changes to 'department-of-education' in the 'topic' taxonomy as well.
- If I delete 'education' from departments, it disappears from topics as well.
How can I separate the terms?
Wordpress does seem to prevent same-named terms in different taxonomies in the admin, but my taxonomies and terms were imported in the course of a site migration using a WXR file, and Wordpress let them in—so now I'm stuck with them.
