Post Glue

Description

Sticky posts for WordPress, improved.

This plugin addresses the following issues and limitations found in the core’s implementation of sticky posts:

  • Only the core post type supports this feature.
  • Sticky posts are added in front of your homepage’s results, yielding more posts than the configured per-page setting.
  • Sticky posts reappear as you navigate further into the archive.
  • Sticky posts are prepended to your results when querying specific posts with post__in.
  • Difficult to include sticky posts in custom queries.

Some of these issues cause strange behaviour (like when using the REST API) and complicate the creation of custom homepage layouts.

At one point we decided to stop fighting the core and partially reimplemented the feature using custom post fields and meta queries, giving you:

  • Sticky posts for all non-hierarchical post types.
  • Post stickiness on post type and taxonomy archives.
  • Respect for your configured per-page setting, with stickies spilling over onto the next page.
  • Duplicates filtered from your archive pages.
  • The ability to sort by stickiness on virtually any WP_Query lookup.
  • Support for the is_sticky() function.
  • A predictable WordPress REST API experience.
  • A slight SQL query overhead (sorry!)

Post Glue will continue to save post IDs to the sticky_posts option, meaning you’ll retain some core functionality even if you decide to stop using the plugin.
