How to stick your post?

It is even simpler than installing your plugin. Choose the victim post to stick on the top and add custom field Key=STICKY and Value=1, press Add Custom Field button, save the post and you are done!!!.

Known Issue

If your sticky post is very latest and comes on the front page of your blog, it will be repeated. (This post will be shown as a sticky post and as a regular post)


1) I activated plugin but cannot see sticky post.
Check your WordPress version. It must be WP 2.1 or greater or WPMU 1.1 or greater. Second you check the custom field name and make sure that you spelled it correct.

2) I would like to activate Yearly/Monthly/Weekly Repeater Plugin as well
Dont do that mistake. It is going to throw mysql error.

3) I got weird mysql error
This plugin changes query for showing posts. It is possible that you have another plugin which also modifies the query and hence the resultant query is a junk query which MySQL is not recognizing. so now you have to deactivate any one of the plugins.

    After following this tutorial, I couldn’t get a couple of things to work. The permalinks will not work with the register_post_type() and arrays outlined in a function; I simply removed this and permalinks worked fine

    I tried sticky posts on the latest 2.9.2 WP, and it doesn’t seem to work.

    I really needed to find a workaround to the fact that the “Stick post” concept does not work when the first page of the website is static, and a different blog page is set in the “reading settings”.
    Thanks for any help
