How to Find the Post ID

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:

  1. Go to Posts => All Posts in your WordPress Admin Panel
  2. Hover your mouse over the link to the “item” you need the ID for.
  3. 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.
