I’ve hit a bit of a stumbling block on my project and just can’t figure it out.
I have a wordpress site with ‘advert’ custom post types.
I’ve created tags and things were moving along fine. One day when tagging the ‘advert custom post types’ wordpress recreated another, almost duplicated, tag.
Wordpress extra creation: strongrunning-events
Since then I can no longer tag ads into the original, they will only allow to be tagged with the new. I’ve tried deleting the tag, and retagging the advert with the correct original tag, but wordpress just recreates a new one. I’ve tried changing the name but this causes further duplicate tags to be inexplicably created.
Wordpress seems to remember and continues to recreate old deleted tags so perhaps the best course of action is through phpmyadmin?
