Multiple attributes with same slug

Two separate attribute names (used for products in Woocommerce) have been designated the same slug. This was the result of two separate product imports using WP All Import.

Unfortunately this is in a production environment and the problem has not occured on the development server. I cannot disable theme or other plugins and experiment with imports.

In case it's related to escaping characters I mention the attributes, one has an apostrophe (ATTRIBUTE NAME -> SLUG):

Payne's gray -> paynes-gray
Paynes gray -> paynes-gray

I believe the first row was imported first. The effect is that variant products belonging to the second attribute cannot be displayed. The system interprets them as out of stock.

(For the curious, Payne's gray is a pigment mix.)

Hi @Gabriel Winnberg and welcome to Trac!

Trac is used for tracking issues with WordPress itself, but this appears to be an issue with WP All Import or WooCommerce, so I would suggest asking on the WP All Import support forums instead.

Closing this out, as it's not an issue with WordPress core. If it turns out this is actually a WordPress core bug, feel free to reopen.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
