Many WordPress themes, especially those in magazine style, need to have some configurations in terms of category IDs in order to show things properly. They will often ask you for a Category ID in the theme option panel. And you might be wandering how on earth to find those IDs.
That is, in fact, a quite easy task – even though it might be a little tricky. This post is all about those IDs and how to find them in no time. Here we go:
- On your dashboard, under the Posts menu, click Categories;
- Keep the mouse over the category whose ID you need;
- Look at your browser’s status bar and you will see something like this in the shown URL: tag_ID=160 – all you need is the number.
So that you know, this is true for WordPress tags and other custom taxonomies you might be using in your site – the ID finding process is the same.
This is all for this time. I hope you enjoyed it. And good luck!
