Changing ID number (2 posts)

    Is there way to change the ID number of a post? I had put in a new post on a blog and looked at it several times. The ID was http://office-organiser.com.au/blog/?p=42 and so I sent out a newsletter (on behalf of my client) announcing details of this post and then when I went back to look at it the ID had changed to http://office-organiser.com.au/blog/?p=43. So when anyone goes to the link I gave them, it says there is no post matching that criteria. How can that happen and why? I had done a copy and paste so there is no way I would have written the link incorrectly. Is there a way to change the ID number back to http://office-organiser.com.au/blog/?p=42?

    Those id numbers are set when the post is written into the database. Guess you could copy and save what is in p=42 now, then copy and paste from p=43 to p=42 using Manage Posts.

    Also, in case you want to give your readers a more meaningful link to your posts, see:
