Definitive Sticky Posts Guide for WordPress 2.7 :: Nathan Rice
As the blogosphere is abuzz about all the cool new features in WordPress 2.7, I’ve seen very few (if any) good posts on the new Sticky Posts feature that will allow you to take any story, or stories, you’ve published and place them at the top of your homepage without editing the timestamp. This new feature will allow you to take posts that you’re especially proud of and display them for all the world to see for as long as you want.
But for many theme and plugin developers, and even users who may want to do a little DIY theme hacking, there is very little documentation for getting the feature set up to do the things you want it to. That’s where this guide comes in.
