Is there an easy way of determining the ID of a locality for insertion in an article.
I can find the photo IDs ok

I have looked and looked for the locality IDs and still can't find them

You are not talking about the number that is part of the locality URL?

Well, it is part of the URL.
When you surf to that page, the URL will be in the address bar of your browser.
Or when you hover the mouse pointer above the link, most browsers will show the URL with the numer somewhere on the bottom.
