Post Number instead of Post ID (3 posts)

    I'm fairly new to WordPress, and I'm getting the hang of most of it, but I've searched all over for an answer to this question and I can't seem to find it.

    I have 15 or so posts on my blog, but the ID number for my last post is 46! Is there a way to make that 15, since it's the 15th post?

    Thanks so much!

    Trying to control post id numbers is a futile process when you consider that pages and attachments are also stored in the wp_posts table.

    Also if a post is created, then deleted later on that number is 'lost'.

    I think JayR102 is asking how to make the permalink show "15" and not "46". Internal ID doesn't matter as much as external URL. So the question is, is there a varilable like /%post_id% but that will actually show the #th post?
