  1. Thankfully this problem is now easily dealt with – wordpress just keeps getting better and better. Still have problems adding a space (blank line) though.

  2. Is a sticky post the same as a featured post that you can get a plugin for or are they different things? It seems quite a popular practise to use sticky posts on forums.

  3. @poznan – Even if you get wp 2.7 with Stickies, if your theme is not upgraded – it cannot display sticky posts.

  4. okay… Good tips but I don’t see a point in making yourself troubled with some additional reading when you could get wp 2.7 – you’ll have stickies and you’ll have safe version.

  5. A very helpful post for bloggers who use wordpress. Sticky posts are a very useful aspect of wordpress blogging. Thanx for posting it.
