Hi all,

I’m trying to register a taxonomy for a custom post type which is simple enough, but when I go back to my dashboard and try to click through to create some of the categories/taxonomies – I get a WordPress error that just says “Cheatin’ uh?”

Any idea why I’m getting this? Here’s my code for ref..

register_taxonomy("Project Categories", array("portfolio"), array("hierarchical" => true, "label" => "Project Categories", "singular_label" => "Project Category", "rewrite" => true));

Cheers.

That error is shown when you don’t have the correct user permissions (WordPress not file permissions).

Try re-granting yourself administrative rights.

Also check if you have any post_types/taxonomies with the same name. I read somewhere that it can throw that error if you have duplicate names.

I’ve definitely got admin role and this is the only custom taxonomy I’ve registered so it can’t be a name conflict – any other ideas, guys?

Much appreciated :)

This ones an awesome fun error ;)

try:

register_taxonomy("projectcategories"

i.e. lower case ‘p’.

maybe 1 word is needed as well, but this error is definately thrown when you capitalise the name of the taxonomy. (nice eh ;))

if this doesn’t fix it, you might need to clear out the old taxonomies from the dbase, but removing the capital should do the trick.

Shot in the dark here but I just read on a support forum someone changed the taxonomy name to all lower case letters and the error went away.

Yep – that worked.

register_taxonomy("projectcategories", array("portfolio"), array("hierarchical" => true, "label" => "Project Categories", "singular_label" => "Project Category", "rewrite" => true));

Cheers to you all :)
