Description

Currently I’m using Woocommerce 8.9.1 and WordPress 6.5.3. This makes importing from my old site to my new site problematic. I created a new site and exported the products from the old site and imported it into the new site. So how can we increase the current limit on maximum product attribute path length from 28 characters to more? I asked Woocommerce about this issue and they said it was an issue in WordPress core.

  • Summary changed from Request to increase permalink character limits in WordPress to Increase taxonomy name character limit
  • Version changed from 6.5.3 to 2.3

WooCommerce product attribute slugs include a pa_ prefix, which reduces the rather small 32-character limit WordPress has imposed since [5510].

Is it possible to increase the character limit when upgrading to WordPress 6.6?
