I am trying to figure out how to keep 10 posts on the front page and have (for example) 4 of them be sticky.
What I have found is if I set the posts to display 10 per page (what I want) I enter 10 per page to show.
BUT if I make 4 sticky on the front page - it ADDS 4 to the front page and also adds 10 to the front page besides the 4 stickies. I dont want 10 on the front page PLUS 4 sticky, I want to make 10 per page with 4 on the front page sticky and then have the other pages have 10 on them.
In other words if I make any sticky, not to add it to the front page plus the number per page, but make the sticky on the front part of the number per page.
I hope this makes some sense. The only way I have found around this is make the "sticky" ones non sticky and change the posting date on them (which I do not want to change)
