Very Unique Question (database related) (2 posts)

    Didn't even bother looking for an answer to this because I wouldn't even know where to begin. I installed the latest wordpress with the k2 theme. i'm a perfectionist kinda (yea i know i'm silly), so i simply had to have my post id's go in order. my page ids (starting with the about page) start at 2, 3, 4 ... 7. and my post ids start from 8,9 ... 15. i of course realize it's a big nono editing the database tables; however i have quite a bit of experience in database work, so i thought no big deal. i editing the post_ids and correctly changed the auto increment values, and everything displays correctly (in order) except for one thing that irks me. onto my problem ...

    you know how if you update a post, create a page, etc, a little banner pops up and says "XXX done successfully" above the editing window? Mine does not do that now, and for the life me, i can't figure out why. i've looked through the PHP-admin code, and i cant seem to find anything useful (not really familiar with PHP).

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated, as this is a weird problem. it may not seem important, but its one of those things that is making me pull my hair out :)


    note: for clarity, i did the same procedure with categories (making them in order), and if i update a category, the update banner appears there. if this issue is database related, the ONLY thing i could think of would be the meta_id field in the wp_postmeta table, as i didn't change any of those values when i updated the post ids

    Just for the record: post and Page IDs go together, so if after 5 existing posts you create your first Page, it will have an ID of 6.
    I'd suggest start it over - I mean the whole blog (and forget the OCD :)
