WordPress 2.5 and Page ID’s

I’m currently working on a small project for a local business. As I’m under pressure for time, I’m using WordPress as a CMS.

Because I use pages for the site content, there are times when I need to know the page ID. For some reason the developers have decided it would be better that the admin interface no longer shows the page ID.

According to this thread on the WordPress forums, the solution is to mouse over the page link and check the URL in the browser status bar. Not a very elegant solution if you ask me. Help is at hand. Thanks to Nick Ohrn, there’s a plugin available to restore page ID’s. You can grab it from the official Restore ID WordPress plugin page.
