When you unregister, what happens to the existing categories that have been
Shall I just run this at the twentyten functions.php?
add_action( 'init', 'unregister_taxonomy');
$taxonomy = 'category';
if ( taxonomy_exists( $taxonomy))
and after that, go find the post.php and change the label from categories
to topics? is that a safe thing to do ?
wouldn't this go away when we update the wordpress core though?
I want the label topics to stay permanently regardless of the updates..
