  • Changing Forum ID's

    Hey Everyone,

    I was just wondering if it would hurt/break anything if I was to change forum ID's.

    For Example, I have removed/added/removed forums here and there on my site, so my forum ID's look something like .. 1, 4, 5, 10, 13, etc. ..

    instead of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

    If I was to change them, would it automatically change links and such to reflect that change? Or what damage might that cause?

    Oh yes you would break things so leave them be.

      Hmm, even tho that is purely cosmetic, and dosent really affect anything, you could change it by making a new forum, and trasfering all the info from one forum to that one, then transfering the correct forum to the old one, and so on and so on,but its probly not worth your time to do it. I havent done this, but i think it would work, if you decide to do it, back up before, and dont sue me if you loose everything :)

        Cosmetic? Oh i know - I am just a REALLY big neat freak and it bugs me sometimes ;)

        Thanks for the feedback guys.
