How you deal it with woocommerce website. I am creating following categories in WooCommerce. as well as its a issue of wordPress itself for post and pages.

Buy > Display > Mobile > Iphone 14
Buy > Screen Protector > Mobile > Iphone 14
Is it possible to have the same sub-category slug under each parent category?

Example cateogy should look like that -
When I try this, WordPress throws up the error message:

The slug “sub category” is already in use by another term.

It's important to have duplicate sub-categories.

using different hierachery should have this option. cms Including magento have this features too.

hi @majbahul, welcome to WordPress Trac. I'm sorry to hear you are having difficulty with your site, however this Trac is used for the development of the WordPress software, not for assistance with individual sites or plugins.

I would suggest reaching out to the WooCommerce Support Forums for further assistance as it sounds like you have a question about that plugin rather than a bug report for WordPress Core.

I've closed this ticket with the term invalid, in this case it's the unfriendly term trac uses to indicate that I've referred you to somewhere where you can find people better able to assist you.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
