Cheatin’ uh? error in wordpress with custom taxonomies

Cheatin’ uh? error in wordpress with custom taxonomies.

Have you ever got a ‘Cheatin’ uh?‘ when you try to access a custom taxonomy page you have added to a custom post type? I was facing this problem today. The strange thing is that this issue was coming only for some taxonomy, not for all. After some trail and error methods I found the reason for this issue. When you create a taxonomy name only lowercase letters are allowed and no spaces are allowed. So if your taxonomy name has an upper case letter or a space, you will get this error.

For eg: ‘Movie Stars’ or ‘Movie’ is not valid. ‘movie’ or ‘moviestars’ is valid.
