Sticky Custom Post Types

Description

This plugin adds a “Stick this to the front page” checkbox on the admin add/edit entry page of selected custom post types.

Set options to enable in Settings → Reading. Unless you’re using custom queries to display your sticky posts, you probably want to check the option to add selected post types to the blog home.

Note: Sticky custom posts are stored in the global ‘sticky_posts’ option field, just like regular posts.

Installation

  1. Upload sticky-custom-post-types.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Navigate to ‘Settings → Reading’ and set your options.
