I'm using JSON api plugin to pull data from wordpress into an app I am making. I need a unique identifier to make sure I don't have any duplicates WHILE also using the identifier as a way to sort from newest post to oldest post. As of right now I'm confused because I pull the 10 most recent posts. I then take the ID and I attempt to reach example.com/?id=1774 but I don't get the correct post. I get a different one. I'm starting to run out of ideas?

If you look at the description for the different tables used by WordPress, the columns described as "auto_increment" will be unique.

I am not sure what you are doing though. The URL structure you are using is not one that I recognize. That is, the syntax I think you want is this:

example.com/?p=1774

rather than this:

example.com/?id=1774

?p= + a valid ID should always give you the post with the referenced ID number.

Hmm... I was able to get the post through api/get_post/?post_id=1774 –  EGHDK Jan 18 at 4:36
    
Your example in the question is example.com/?id=1774. Your example in the preceding comment looks to be passing data through an interface provided by the plugin. –  s_ha_dum Jan 18 at 15:20
