After recently writing my post “Include a Post within a Page or Post“, I was in the process of writing a tutorial to give you an easier way to find the Post ID, by adding a column in the post editor screen.
Well, it seems that WP Snipp pipped me to the post as they just published a post doing exactly that. So rather than go through the rigmarole of writing the snippet myself, I’m going to give you his snippet. Drop it into your functionality plugin to use it:
Now when you go to your posts (or pages) screen, you’ll see that there’s an additional column that shows your post ID for easy reference. Pretty handy huh? Thanks for the snippet Kevin.
