How to reset Category ID? (3 posts)

    I wonder how do we reset the categories ID number? I have several categories, I wish sort them in the order I want. The sort asc/desc/update do not meets my requirements.
    I have think of modifying Category ID in database, but I afraid it will mess up the whole database as I do not know the real relationship between the tables. (we do not have documentation on database tables yet, do we?)
    Any ideas? Thank you.

    I have been playing around with my new installation of WP and especially the link cat id's. I have renumbered mine 10, 20, 30 ,40, 50 and 60. This gives me the opportunity to insert cat while using the id rank without having to rename them all. I did this via myphpadmin and everything seems OK.
