I'm new to WordPress as my first bout with it was with 2.3. I tested things on my home server with magazine themes as I plan to use one as a CMS. I finally got the hang of it, messing around with the php files and stylesheets--then BAM! In version 2.5, the category IDs disappeared (in the "manage category" section). What happened to them? And where can I buy some?
Category IDs are essential to my magazine-style theme to control the content of the home page (i.e. display recent post from cat. 3).
