    so..

    once you make a new page.. you get the choice to VIEW it...

    but it you EDIT it... you only get a PREVIEW... which is not the same hyperlink/URL.... not really useful sometimes..

    also. since I am here.. why did the PAGE ID numbers go away?! that was a sad move for me... :(

    For the Page ID, in Administration > Page > Edit, hover the mouse of the title of the page to see that ID.

    Oops, that would be in Manage->Pages for 2.6.

    wow.. I can't find Administration or Manage!

    I am referring to a wordpress install on a server and not a wordpress blog.. is that what you were talking about?

    because in my dashboard/sidebar I see nothing like that... just Settings....

    Sounds like you need to talk to your blog (or system) administrator.

    Look, these are my settings

    Do you simply mean that I can manage the PAGES? well , that I do have, but I hover and nothing..

    Let me draw a scenario for you:

    I am told by a website owner to change something.

    I use the search function and find the PAGE.

    I locate the issue, and fix it, and then hit UPDATE.

    All nice and fine and dandy right?

    Wrong.

    I want to see my fix ups, but not in preview mode. I hate preview mode, because it creates its unique URL.

    I know I am being picky, but I am sure that a simple "VIEW PAGE" button is soooo simple!!

    right? wrong?
