Why is the post ID so high?

  • Take a look at this thread here and look at the post numbers in the top right corner of each post.

    This is a freshly installed forum, not many users yet, just a few posts and topics, and yet the ID of the posts is far above 1000.

    Is that normal? Like, does it start with a random number, or should the first post of the forum start with #1?

    bbpress uses wordpress posts, so this will be the count of all posts of whatever type since your site started. Post and page revisions count as posts, so each time you hit update on a page, post, topic, reply, forum and whatever other custom post types you have, a new post is created, so 1346 is actually quite low !!

    Alright, that makes sense! Thank you. 🙂
