  • How do you make an old post re-appear of the home page? I need this because several posts will be updated regularly, and I want them to jump on the first page when that happens, so that people will see the updated version.

    I don’t want them to be sticky (stay on top), I just want the to behave as new posts.

  • Editing the post date might work. I’m not sure. If that works… You will have to do that manually. The post date doesn’t by default change when you edit a post. If you have dates in your URLs you may end up with broken links though. Again, not sure.

    You could also alter the main query to sort by post_modified instead of post_date. I can’t think of any real issues that might come from that but there may be some. I’ve never tried it.
