    We're looking at using sitefinity for an internal knowledge base. Each document would be part of 1 category, however currently we can't create categories that have the same name.

    I can see why you wouldn't want this when the categories used to just be non-heirarchy based. But now that we can add sub-categories can categories be enhanced to allow the same name. Internally I believe you keeep categories and their references by ID which are all unique.

    Hi Matt,

    honestly, this is an unreasonable limitation - especially with the new hierarchical categories. You are absolutely right. We will resolve it with the new taxonomy system in Sitefinity 4.0.

    Thank you for using Sitefinity and helping us improve the product with your feedback. Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
