Nothing in cyberspace is sacred
Don’t get battered by search engines, where they want you to write some php coding just to find out the Node ID of a Drupal post.
Go to the “admin/Content area” of your site and see the list of entries. Find the content for which you want to find that elusive Node ID number. Hover over the “Edit link”. Look down to see the hyperlink your browser tells you it will follow if you click on “Edit”.

Bye for now.
