Sometimes it is necessary to know the ID of a particular post. For example, you might need to know the ID of a post you want to add as a “featured post” to the slider in our theme. To determine the post ID, use one of these methods:
Look in your browser status bar for the ID:
- Go to Posts => All Posts in your WordPress Admin Panel
- Hover your mouse over the link to the “item” you need the ID for.
- Look at the status bar (at the bottom of your browser)which will show you the url for the post. The end of this address will be something like “post=123”. In these cases, 123 is the Post ID.
Install a plugin:
Install and activate Catch ID’s Plugin which will display the ID in your Post admin panel.
