Why do I get such ridiculous Categories ID? (3 posts)

    My categories IDs are:

    3
    34
    94
    40
    119

    Why are the IDs numbers so ridiculous???

    Categories are stored in the terms table, as are link categories and tags.

    Each item in the table is assigned an ID sequentially. So when you add a category some time after you've added tags or a link category or two, the numeric IDs for them will seem fairly disparate.

    Does it really matter to you what the ID numbers are? They could be wholly arbitrary, it doesn't make any real difference.
