    If you click on "publish" instead of "save", the status will change to publish.

    Hey LL,
    I discovered a small bug! Apparently, if you assign a post as STICKY and of a SINGLE CATAGORY, things work fine.
    But when you assign STICKY and MORE THAN ONE CATAGORY to a post, then the post is replicated based on the number of catagories you assign it to. Hmm... wierd! Apparently this happens even if you DON'T assign sticky too.
    I run WP 1.01 and have done all the 1.0 steps shown in your readme file including the one from 1.01.

    I've created another sticky post system. It's viewable at http://blog.morydd.net/index.php?p=148
    and can be viewed in action on the main page http://blog.morydd.net/
    It currently works in RC2, but does not use WP-approved db calls because I could not get them working, if anyone is able to do this, let me know.

    Where does the < ?php if (empty($_GET) ) { include('sticky.php'); } ?> code go in the index.php file?

    The <?php if (empty($_GET) ) { include('sticky.php'); } ?> code goes in the index.php file wherever you wish your sticky post to appear, outside the WordPress Loop

    Does it work with wp 1.2 Mingus?

    Yes. I'd love to re-package it as a plug-in but I don't have the skills needed to set it up that way. Any help with that would be appreciated.

    @morydd: if you like I can re-package your alternate sticky post system into a WP plugin.

    hey @hdstich, what kind of timeframe are we looking at, since you are being responsible and working for the man? ;-)

    I have a sticky post plugin based on using the custom fields attribute in WP 1.2, trial version should be ready later today, just sorting a few bugs out. You can make posts sticky for any category or subcategory or for the main listing. You can unsticky them whenever you want.

    @Anonymous:
    sounds interesting! using a custom field is also an oppurtunity for marking the posts sticky.
    @morydd:
    hehe, just started the coding...

    any way to make it sticky (forever) within a category page? for example, i've got X categories, each with a descriptive post (says what the category is all about) - would love to leave the 'description' up top forever, so that all news posts just continue to go below...right now, i have to keep changing the dates...kind of tedious...

    how would you take andrew_h's plugin (which is v1.2 compatible) and remove the postdate for the particular posts that you want to be sticky?
    it looks like the answer to a similar question in this thread is for laughinglizard's method...which is not yet 1.2 ready (actually, it involves playing with the database and i am too scared too do that right now, being just a cut 'n paster).
