I have been running into difficulties because category names are case sensitive - and I don’t really understand why that is the case and I think it is a bug because it can cause confusion and unexpected name collisions.
- changing the name of a category from
blogbreaks the top level menu if categories/Blog was a menu item. Needed to be changed to
- blog import did not categorize imported posts to the blog category when Blog is in the settings. Needed to be changed to
blogfor it to work
- it’s possible to have two categories with the same name with different case, e.g.
This is not only confusing but will cause name collision issues if both are set up with the same email address… which is thankfully not case sensitive.(update: I tried this and it did not let me add a conflicting email address - nicely done)
It seems to me that the case should just affect presentation but otherwise duplicate categories should not be allowed. Like email. Likewise, functionality like top level menus should not be concerned with case and should treat
Blog and even
bLog as identical.
