register_taxonomy() doesn't fail when taxonomy name too long — at Version 1

Description (last modified by nacin)

The 'taxonomy' field of the 'term_taxonomy' table is VARCHAR(32), ie truncated at 32 characters. But register_taxonomy() doesn't fail when you try to create a taxonomy with a unique name longer than this.

The effects are that terms can be added to 'terms' table along with corresponding entries in 'term_taxonomy', but that these can't be read back again. The taxonomy appears in the admin menus, but appears to be totally empty.

  • Description modified (diff)
  • Summary changed from create_taxonomy() doesn't fail when taxonomy name too long to register_taxonomy() doesn't fail when taxonomy name too long

In register_post_type(), we do:

if ( strlen( $post_type ) > 20 )
		return new WP_Error( 'post_type_too_long', __( 'Post types cannot exceed 20 characters in length' ) );

Seems like a good thing here.
