Catch IDs


Catch IDs is a simple and light weight plugin to show the Post ID, Page ID, Media ID, Links ID, Category ID, Tag ID and User ID in the Admin Section Table. This plugin was initially develop to support our themes features slider. Then we thought that this will be helpful to all the WordPress Admin Users. Just activate and catch IDs in your page, post, category, tag and media pages.

Check out our new modular plugin Catch Web Tools. Power up your WordPress site with powerful features that were till now only available to Catch Themes users. We currently offer Webmaster Tools, Open Graph, Custom CSS, Social Icons, Catch IDs and basic SEO Optimization modules and will be adding more.


  1. Just install and activate.


  • Der Link befindet sich in der „Veröffentlichen“ Box.
  • Edit Media Library
  • Kategorien bearbeiten


The easy way (via Dashboard) :

  • Go to Plugins > Add New
  • Type in the Catch IDs in Search Plugins box
  • Click Install Now to install the plugin
  • After Installation click activate to start using the Catch IDs
  • Go to Catch IDs from Dashboard menu
  • Now you will get ID’s column in your post, page, category, tag and media panel

Not so easy way (via FTP) :

  • Download the Catch IDs
  • Unarchive Catch IDs plugin
  • Copy folder with
  • Open the ftp \wp-content\plugins\
  • Paste the plug-ins folder in the folder
  • Go to admin panel => open item „Plugins“ => activate Catch IDs
  • Go to Catch IDs from Dashboard menu


Added it’s own section to main Add Plugins page

The Add Plugins page had only 4 main items: Featured, Popular, Recommended, and Favorites. Via an update, this dev quietly tacked on another item: Catch PlugIns. Of course, it includes premium versions. When you abuse your privileges, I look for a replacement. Thank you. I've since discovered Reveal IDs, with at least 4 times the number of installs as your offering, yet a straight 5-star rating. As a general rule, I wouldn't mention a competing product by name. But you disrespected the privilege I extended to you. Therefore, folks should know of options acting as we expect. I suspect the described intrusion on the central plugins page goes beyond the ToS. In any event, I write to warn other users. I will not return to this page b/c the dev has already shown his core character. Plugin removed, with the dev now on my crap/spammer list.


Very useful. Makes me wonder why the WordPress core developers haven't thought of that. Without this plugin you have to find the ID in the URL.


A must have for every developer, one of my favorite plugins! Thanks again for creating it.
