Randomly generated post IDs possible? (1 post)

    Greetings to all again,

    I'm wondering if anyone has explored turning the wordpress post IDs into randomly generated numbers.

    I usually use example.com/%postname%/ because it looks the cleanest and since using example.com/%post-id%/ is not necessarily sequential anyway.

    I think it would look much cleaner and more logical to randomly generate post id's from 5 digit combinations. You could have like this:

    example.com/87378
    example.com/39892
    example.com/46723

    And such like this. I didn't see any chat about this, or hacks, or plugins, etc. but wondering if this would even be possible. Cheers.

    P.S. not sure if this relates to the TRAC discussions about re-designing wordpress URLs based on routes...?
