Support » Installing WordPress » Post ID changed on its own

  • I’ve noticed while going through the post manager, that some of my Post’s IDs have changed. Posts from a year ago which in the order around them should be 17, 18, and 19 are now 172, 173, and 174. These are also Posts I’ve never edited either. There are also a few others here and there that jump in Post IDs as well.

    I thought Post IDs stayed the same forever.

  • I don’t believe post ids change. Did you you do an import of posts or something of that nature.

    Also note that more than just posts are stored in the wp_posts table. Things you upload also get/take a post_id.

    Might be interesting to look at (with a text editor) an older backup, say from February and look at that to see if what the IDs were then.
