Hi Christian,

I want to issue something else for your information and knowledge base:

I discovered that if I create a taxonomy called: "status" wordpress refuse to save my custom post and returns an parameter error and doesn't save and change the status of the post. I run into this accidentally and asked my host provider to help my with this issue. An attentive help desk person notified me about this taxonomy conflict created with the toolset plugin and the problem disappeared.

I hope this can be made clear in the taxonomy creation page so other users of the toolset don't run accidentally in making the same mistake

Best regards,

Hello, thank you for the report. I agree, it will be very helpful to stop this type of problem. Just to be clear, is this the error message you are referring to? It is shown in the Block Editor when editing a post. Are you seeing the error message anywhere else?

Hi Christian,

Thank you for your reply and providing the screen. Yes this is exactly what I've been seeing while updating or saving my single post. I didn't see it anywhere else but on single posts.

Best regards

Please note there is a list of terms reserved by WordPress here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Reserved_Terms
I will report your concern to our developers and see if we can add some validation to new taxonomy slugs based on the reserved term list, or add some pertinent messaging to the software. I'll let you know what I find out.
