Hi, reading this

Ok then cool.

But I've had this weird bug with the table posts : collation utf8_mb4 was not set properly for this table (I do not really know why). As a result everytime $wpdb->insert_id was used it just inserted posts with ID 0 !

For example, each upload just failed and because an AJAX grid layout is used in admin (media library page) it just failed to load anything !

Took me some time to realize this was related to a database issue and not my php code that uses wp_insert_post().

My question is : would it be safer to prevent WordPress from inserting posts with ID 0 in any case ? I'm refering to this line
