Hopefully just a simple question with a simple answer…
From some quick research I’d expected page and post ids to be distinct from each other but, even on my simple little site with (so far) 42 pages and 4 posts, my latest page is post=1109 and my latest post is post=1075. So they’re obviously numbered as part of the same (‘post’) series with edits/revisions to earlier pages/posts apparently responsible for pushing the numbers up so quickly? Not that it matters when site users are seeing the sensible permalinks rather than the crazy numbers unless they’re viewing source, but I’d thought pages should have ‘page’ numbers/ids and posts ‘post’ numbers/ids. Haven’t got anything to compare page-wise because my only other WordPress installation is used for blogging (posts) only, but just wondering if it’s standard WordPress practice or some GeneratePress setting I’ve inadvertently tripped to make page and post ids part of the same number series and incrementing like that?
I didn’t really think it could be anything I (or you) had done and knew it was probably just a general WordPress question, but was slightly thrown by some web searching earlier suggesting that page and post ids should be different.
Thanks again for a prompt answer to a question I probably shouldn’t have asked!
