category_exists() checks using slug
|Reported by:||Viper007Bond||Owned by:|
Okay, maybe I'm missing something, but I noticed when you give category_exists() a category name, it creates a sanitized version of that name (i.e. what it's slug would be) and then sees if there are any categories that already have that slug. However, you can change the slugs for categories in the admin area to something completely different than the category name.
Now is category_exists() really just used to see if a category slug exists? Or is it just checking in a bad method?
