Category Archive "Sticky" Post

    First, it’s possible there is a setting I have missed.

    Okay, on the home page, if I have a post set as “sticky” it will show up first, before other non-sticky posts. Perfect!

    Now, if I navigate to the category archive page that has the “sticky” as one of the posts, the “sticky” shows up in order of when it was created rather than at the top.

    Is there a way to make the “sticky” appear at the top of the category archive page in which it is assigned?

    (I’ve also posted this in the Feature Requests section)

    Not that I know of. On front pages, sticky posts always go to the top, but on any sort of archive, everything is in order from newest to oldest. Even if you have two sticky posts, the newest one is still the one on top.

    Right, that part I understand.

    For reference:

    http://www.joshlobe.com : The sticky “Welcome to My Website” is on top, as it should be.

    http://www.joshlobe.com/category/main-blog/ : The “Welcome to My Website” post is not on the top, even though it is “sticky”. Rather, it is ordered in the date it was created.

    I’m sure it was intended to be this way… for archive posts to be ordered according to date created. However, what if I wanted the sticky post to be at the top of the category page, preceding any other non-sticky posts?

    I’m thinking….

    🙂 Exactly.

    I was thinking it would be really cool to have an option, maybe on the edit post page. But then I wonder how many people would find an option like that useful?? Probably not very high on the priority list…

    Actually, it might be easiest, since this is my current “big thing”, is to just add an action hook widget area to the top of the archive page, just under the <h1>. Then you could attach whatever you would like there: an extended description, etc.

    maybe in 1.6 or 1.7?

    Haha, I know right?! The action hook thing is definitely kewl.

    Yeah, that would definitely work. I guess it would add this widget area to every category page though? I suppose I could use Widget Logic and make a separate one for each category page.

    … Hmmmm…
