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:
<!-- nourl -->http://www.minibb.com/forums/index.php?action=vtopic&forum=7<!-- /nourl -->
For a simple mod_rewritten URLs, it will be like
After "forum=" there follows forum's ID.
For various mod_rewrite schemas, forum ID could be located at the other position, but in most cases, in any schema, it is the first appearing number before delimiter, and the topic ID is following after. For example, in the URL of this topic:
- forum ID is located in the emulated folder name which is 'faq', and it is 7; the topic ID is the second met number and it is 448.
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?
