How to find your category id.
So, you have an awesome new set up for project galleries and you want to follow the tutorial for adding new galleries (that tutorial is in our tutorial library) but it asks for your category id. How on earth do you find that?
got you covered.
Head to your dashboard, please.
Head to your Posts tab on your dashboard and choose Categories in the dropdown.
You will see something like this (with your categories, of course!)
Now, click on any old category you want. We clicked on nelliebellie announcements.
At the top of your page in the address bar you have a giant, long url. In that url you have some numbers or a number or several numbers. Those are your id.
So, the category id for nelliebellie announcements in our list would be 2092.
Now we have our category id. Yay us!!
Use it to rule the world!
P.S. there is no need to do anything within that category, just close it up…you have what you came for.
