Support » Developing with WordPress » Post Number instead of Post ID

  • I’m fairly new to WordPress, and I’m getting the hang of most of it, but I’ve searched all over for an answer to this question and I can’t seem to find it.

    I have 15 or so posts on my blog, but the ID number for my last post is 46! Is there a way to make that 15, since it’s the 15th post?

    Thanks so much!

  • Trying to control post id numbers is a futile process when you consider that pages and attachments are also stored in the wp_posts table.

    Also if a post is created, then deleted later on that number is ‘lost’.

    I think JayR102 is asking how to make the permalink show “15” and not “46”. Internal ID doesn’t matter as much as external URL. So the question is, is there a varilable like /%post_id% but that will actually show the #th post?
