#6875 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Adding subcategory with same name as another subcategory (in different parent category) fails

Description

e.g. my category hierarchy:

Category 1

  • Category a

Category 2

Adding a new "Category a" with parent "Category 2" gives the error:

The category you are trying to create already exists.

Current workaround:

Adding a new "Category a1" with parent "Category 2" works.
Renaming "Category a1" to "Category a" works!
