How to determine Forum ID

The manual suggests that admin can make certain 'hidden' adjustments to forums....such as registered users forum, or private forum.

This appears to require knowledge of the forum's 'ID', so it can be stated in an array in the required file.

But where is the ID of a forum indicated? If I have six forums, how do I know their IDs? is the first forum I created ID 1? And the second ID 2? and so on? What happens if I change the order of the forums - does the ID change as well?

Where is the forum ID indicated?

Just go to the first page, where forums are listed, and mouse over on forum's title. In the status bar you'll see thing like that:

http://www.minibb.com/forums/index.php?action=vtopic& forum=7

For mod_rewritten URLs, it will be like

http://www.minibb.com/forums/7_0.html


After "forum=" there is contained forum's ID.

If mod_rewritten, first number before "_" is forum ID.

is the first forum I created ID 1? And the second ID 2? and so on?
No, not obligately.

What happens if I change the order of the forums - does the ID change as well?
No.

FORUM ID. Mouse over on forum title on the 1st page, you will see the URL ending with forum=SOMETHING; something is ID.
