I'm developing a new website, but I can't quite figure out a solution to my permalinks problem.
My main website is http://w3spine.com, I'm sending posts to my second WP installation at http://w3lol.com where I want posts permalinks to be consistent numbers like w3lol.com/50, w3lol.com/51, w3lol.com/52, etc.
I cannot use post ID since there are a whole bunch of other stuff that are stored in wp_posts and the IDs skip some numbers (ex. if given post has id 50 in the best case scenario the next one is with id 54 (50 is the post id, 51 and 52 are revisions put there by default and 53 is the next post's attached image), not to mention that if I happen to do a revision on some post, or add a page or anything that number will increase.
It is not a problem to use the post slug as permalink, but the regular users will find it difficult/impossible to keep track of their previous sessions, plus I was hoping to get that short URL look.
I'm willing to accept any kind of solution that will achieve the effect I'm going for.
PS. By using the slug as permalink (%postname%) I mean that every post has it's own name and I cannot change it to 50, 51, 52, etc. which is obvious solution that on the other hand will create another problem.
