#17449 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

get_term_link does not work on dereived terms from get_category

I was noticing that get_categories as of 3.0 allows you to specify a taxonomy, which is great! because there's lots of useful args to be passed into get_categories, but there seems to be a problem where once you have a list of terms for a given taxonomy you can not use get_term_link to retrieve the link to your term.


Does NOT work
$args = array('taxonomy' => 'my_cool_tax' );
$terms = get_categories( $args );

$taxonomy = 'my_cool_tax';
$terms = get_terms( $taxonomy );

foreach( $terms as $term ) {

$html .= '<li><a href="'.get_term_link( $term->slug, $term->taxonomy ) . '"'>'.$term->name.'</a></li>';


print '<ul>' . $html . '</ul>';

Both examples work for me on 3.2.1 and 3.3-trunk with standard and custom taxonomies.

Please reopen with more details if there's still a problem.
