In my blog it shows both on top of the first page and on the position it normally shoud be. But the goal of a sticky post - I think - is to substract it from the normal timeline and put in on top of the first page of posts.
In order to correct this - and keep the pagination correct - I want to create a my_query that checks if there is a sticky and makes a loop accordingly.
This code tells me if the particular post is a sticky. Or if no parameters ar given, it tells me if the current posts to be displayed is a sticky one (inside the loop):
<?php is_sticky($post_ID); ?>
What I need however, is a function or a variable that tells me if there are sticky posts at all in the entire wordpress blog.
So my question is: "Is there a variable or function that tells me if there are ANY sticky posts in wordpress?"
"Do you have a better suggestion for me?"
Thanks in advance!
