    Change forum id number?

    Really not a big deal at all, but I deleted a bunch of forums and shifting the order and so on when I was experimenting and setting up, and I've just noticed that the ID format doesn't keep up with the display order. I have id9 as my first forum, id3 second and so on. It looks silly, can I change them?

    I wouldn't as there are a lot of different places where this would have to be changed.
    As these aren't really displayed anywhere important, my advice is to leave them be.

      We do not recommend doing this. For the end user it really does not matter.

        It can be changed via a SQL query. But, as the others have said, it's pretty risky, and really doesn't matter whatsoever.

          Not a, multiple, as the forumid is stored in multiple places all over the database.
