Board and Category ID?

Thanks Julie. I feel like there should be an easier way to do this... 🙂

Back in the day the IDs were surfaced directly in the URL. Users didn't really understand what they were and it provided no value from an SEO perspective. Thus they were phased-out of the URL when SEO-friendly URLs were brought in.


IMO the IDs should be surfaced in the Community Structure tab somehow.
