I mistakenly added categories and have since deleted them. I have gone into phpMyAdmin and deleted the entries out of the DB also, but now when I create a new category, it still insists on giving an ID after the last category I created.
So, for eg, I only have one category (the default) which has an ID of 1. When I go to create a second category, it gives it an ID of 6, as the last category I added then deleted was 5. Anyone know how I can delete this out of this system and start with the one after default.
Also in the sidebar, does anyone know how I can make the category list appear in ascending order of the ID’s (so, #1, #2, etc). Currently, it seems to be going the other way.
