Post/Page ID Count skips one number when a new page or post created in WordPress 2.8.2
|Reported by:||misty9||Owned by:|
The post or page ID count skips one number whenever a new page or post is created.
This behavior doesn't occur in WP 2.2.2 where post AND page IDs are sequential. In short, one can easily identify the total number of pages and posts for a given website by looking at the ID numbers.
I've notices that after creating a page with ID 25, the next post I had created was given an ID 27, this pattern repeats itself whenever more pages and post are created. In other words, one number is kind of wasted.
Here are my question:
- Isn't there a better way in SQL to wisely handle the skipped post ID's?
- Why doesn't this cumbersome issue found in WP 2.2.2?
SELECT id, post_title, post_status, post_parent
ID Post_title Post_status Post_parent
25 Aug 19 test page publish 0
26 Aug 19 test page inherit 25
27 post test publish 0
28 post test inherit 27
29 test2 publish 0
30 test2 inherit 29
31 post Aug 19, 2009 publish 0
32 post Aug 19, 2009 inherit 31
I have both WP 2.2.2 and 2.8.2 databases ready for your research if needed.
