I just inherited a WordPress blog which was originally used as a RSS aggregator for some time using a plugin wp-o-matic. There were so many posts from other bogs. So it simply inflated the number of posts.
I removed all of them and started adding fresh posts. But alas! The post numbers (call it “Ids”) start from 2422!
I do not like this. I want the numbers to start from 1.
My friend tells me I should have deleted the old database and reinstalled anew which I failed to do. In the meanwhile I have added a few posts, images, pages…!
Now please tell me how to change the posts id numbers. I searched through the forum wherein someone has remarked that it is a painful process. But I have a friend who can tinker with database. But he says he can do it if I get to know what are all the “tables” and elements to be changed.
Please help me.
