I have always allowed GL to set the ID for new static pages, but when I want to link to a static page, it is a pain to have the whole url plus 17 digits as a link.

Is there any danger, besides accidentally re-using a name (caught by GL as an error), in changing ID's?

Thanks, and . .

Blessings!

Not sure what you mean. If you change the ID, then any old links using that ID won't work any more. But that's the only "danger" I can see ...

I was mainly thinking about pages I create from now on. Old ones I would leave alone because many are linked from various sources.

I almost always change the ID, never an issue. If you change an old one there is no problem either, just remeber to change any links to it you may have made to the new ID.
