  • Resolved Overflow


    Just curious as to how WordPress assigns ID’s to categories. I only had 4 categories, then after a bunch of test posts, my next (5th) category jumped to category “23”.

    Again, just curious as to how; the method of which it does this.

  • Categories and Tags are housed in wp_terms table in the database. So if you were tagging your test posts, this would explain why the number jumped up.

    All IDs are generated automatically by MySQL as the record is added to the database.
