I've seen this posted previously but no definitive answer. I've searched for plugins and Googled it but no answer to if or how to accomplish it. Here's my problem:
We have a 13 chapter (category) online handbook where each chapter has several sub-chapters (sub-categories) and the order of the posts (articles) has to be precise. Somehow WordPress went from ID #1620 to #1793 instead of #169? and jumped over a bunch of other posts.
As a consequence, when you hit the Next/Previous button from the #1620 post if goes way out of sequence since there's a bunch of posts in between #1620 and #1793.
I need to change the ID of post #1793 so it's in sequence (so it's in between #1620 and the next post). The sorting method is the post ID so there's no changing timestamps to accomplish this goal.
I've inserted approximately 50 posts after #1793 and I don't want to have to delete all of those then re-enter them just because one is out of sequence. There MUST be some method of accomplishing this..? Anyone?
