I realise there is a way to make any post 'sticky' to the front page
(explanation here http://www.wordpressmax.com/wordpress-guide/wordpress-post-on-top)
but what I want to do is make a post 'sticky' in my Recent list on my front page
Do I need to go in and hard code in the post ID to this section of my theme (and if so, which file(s) will need it in?) or is there a way to do this within WordPress / without a plugin?
