This feature is particularly useful when you are using ‘posts’ to push out content. Normally posts are arranged in the order from the latest published date. It essentially means that the newest post comes in first and the oldest post appears in the last.
This is a very good approach for organizing content. But what if you had an article which you published a month ago that you feel is really important for your readers to see. As you know in this approach as you continue publishing articles, the older ones keeping getting pushed down and it would be harder for your audience to read that content.
To overcome this Issue, WordPress has a feature called as Sticky Post. So once you mark a post as a ‘Sticky Post’, it will always remain at the top of the page irrespective of how many articles you publish after that.
This feature is very useful in case you have an article that you really want your viewers to see. And this always remains on top.
In order to mark a post as a Sticky Post, follow these steps-
- Goto to the WordPress Dashboard.
- Click on Posts .
- Scroll down to the post you want to mark.
- Once you find the post, click on Quick Edit .
- On the right hand corner, Mark the option for ‘Sticky Post’. This would designate this post as a Sticky Post.
