— First Way —

Finding out your category ID number is relatively easy and simple. Only a few steps to achieve this,

Fist off lets goto our control panel

Control Panel

Control Panel

Locate Post click on it then goto Categories
Now their you would see the list of categories that you have, on the right handed side, so hover over the name

and depending on which browser you have, Google and Monzilla is recommended.

You will see a box come up on your screen at the far left bottom, or top right again depending on your browser, it will show something like this
http://www.trottyzone.com/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?action=edit&taxonomy=category&tag_ID=61&post_type=post

the 61 from tag_ID=61 is your Category ID number ( Category # )

—- Second Way —-

goto wp options >>Settings>>Permalinks

and change your permalinks to “Default” save.

Now goto
post > categories > click on category that you would like

look at the address bar and you would see the ID=number

number is your category ID number
