    I want to check for the 2,000th post on my board.
    Is this going to be a db query?

    Hmmm, this is easy for a thread as you just change the ID to 2000 but for a post it needs the thread ID.

    I can't find an obvious way of doing it without querying the DB.

    Got it, just did it the easy way.
    MySQL > xf_post and look for the id :)

    Note that selecting the 2000th post by postid will ignore gaps in the postid values. Gaps are created when posts are deleted.

    This query will select the 2000th post record of the posts that currently exist:

    Code:
    SELECT *
    FROM xf_post
    ORDER BY post_id
    ASC
    LIMIT 1999, 1
    
    One method is not more correct than the other. It just depends on how you want to identify the 2000th post.
