Well, I didn’t know that ever since WordPress has the auto save function, our blog posts numbers are not in sequence anymore. I never notice it until yesterday.
I was like OMG, WTF, I have posted 4563 posts already? It got me a bit panic at first because I know that I only have about 3,000K posts. My mind went into all sorts of imagination and thought that my server has been hacked again.
Then, I did some Googling and found that this blog post number sequence become this way after we have the auto save function in WordPress. Each time there is an autosave, the number increases. No wonder. LOL, sometime, I leave half-written post for several hours because I jump between tasks, both real physical task like going to the toilet or reading something else between writing a blog post.
I notice that there are several tutorials online where we can add some codes into the wpconfig.php file to stop this from occuring. I don’t think I want to mess with my wpconfig.php file though.
So, if you are not aware, the blog posts on your WordPress do not reflect the actual number of posts you write. Don’t go bragging how many posts you have written because the numbers have gone wonky. LOL.
