I'm running WP 3.1.1 with Query Posts 0.3.2. I have spent hours trying to figure out what's going on and need a fresh pair of eyes.
I have a query posts widget with the following [relevant] settings:
Disable sticky posts: unchecked
Reset Query: unchecked
I want this widget to display the second post ordered by date but also accounting for stickiness. These settings somehow don't seem to account for stickiness. When the second-most-recent post is sticky and the most-recent post is not, the widget shows the second-most-recent sticky post (not the expected behavior). When no posts are sticky, this works as expected.
I've tried different combinations of reset query turned on and off but haven't gotten anywhere. This is one of three query posts widgets on the page as well as a custom, templated query_posts query (that does use reset_query after it's called).
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
