How do I change the category’s ID (The number at the end of the URL)?
Example: Latest bug topics - Discourse Meta
- Category URL:
- Category ID =
I am setting up my Discourse community and have created 5 categories that should be in a specific order.
I could specify the display order using the category’s
Position on the categories page setting.
But ideally, I want the first category to have ID 1, the second category to have ID 2, etc.
Is there a setting I simply missed?
Thank you for your time
Welcome, digital potion
As far as I know, IDs are incremental, automatically generated and can’t be overridden.
There are several ways to order categories. To you, is the ID issue only an aesthetic URL problem?
If it is, I can kind of relate. I spent a little bit of effort initially trying to get my site’s primary categories to have nice, sensible single-digit numbers in an order that made sense to me.
Thank you for your quick response Canapin
Yes. I was linking the Discourse URLs to my homepage and preferred them to be in a specific order.
