#2123: Groups can't have the same slugs as pages/posts
Reporter:  rbl                      |       Owner:     
    Type:  defect                   |      Status:  new
Priority:  critical                 |   Milestone:     
Keywords:  slug, group, post, page  |  
 Problem: when groups are named the same way a page or a post, that page or
 post becomes inaccessible.

 Try to visit the Example Blog Post in the news blog (
 http://testbp.org/news/ ) and you'll be redirected to the homepage,
 because I've created a group with the same slug.

 WP's slug safeguard makes perfect sense in the 1 content type world of a
 WP website but, IMHO, BP groups and any other content types exclusive to
 BP should circumvent this mechanism and allow for these duplicated slugs.

 Happy debugging =)
