Information about forum IDs


Unread post by Tiger21820 MASTER!! »

All users, posts, topics, forums, usergroups, and attachments have a unique ID! Whenever something is deleted, that ID, such as post numbers 3, 4, & 5, is never, ever reused! That means you will never see a posts with the IDs of 3 to 5 in the future! Another thing to note are the member IDs! Wonder why you cannot find member #1? That's because member #1 belongs to the "Anonymous" account, and even changing the "u" value to 1 (memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=1) will return an error! My ID is 2, but I am the first registered user! Tiger21821 is member 48 and Tiger21822 is Member 49 but they are the second and third members to join! Where are numbers 3 to 47? Those are assigned to Bots (Group 6), which is a group you cannot view unless you change the value of "g" to 6 (memberlist.php?mode=group&g=6), because the forum prevents anyone from clicking on the "Bots" group in the legend on the index page! No users will be shown on the Bots group page either! Unlike the "Anonymous" account (and for all other Guests, which is group 1), all bot account profiles can be viewed by swapping the value of "u" to a number between 3 and 47 (You cannot click on the link of any Bots user name)! An example is AdsBot [Google] who is User #3! You can "visit" this Bot by clicking on this link: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=3

So that's it about IDs! Was this enlightening? Did you find this interesting? Let me know by giving this post a "Thanks" and replying to it! :biggrin1

I won't do this for every post!
