Reviews

Handy and simple

Thank you for sharing your work. I was looking for a way my editors could stick a post in a featured spot in the homepage and found this simple tool to do it flawlessly. It’s easier than stick a post in the edit post screen or through quick edit, you just have to tick it once. So neat.

I like it

Very nice plugin with easy handling and clearly arranged. You can format your sticky posts with this code in style.css:
.sticky {
background: #eee;

}
and
<div <?php post_class() ?> id=”post-<?php the_ID(); ?>”>
in index.php

Nice

Really nice Plugin, you can mark any Post in any custom post type as sticky. Really useful.
