[resolved] Twenty Eleven - Remove featured posts from default posts page (6 posts)

    I have a site using a child theme of twenty eleven. I have a showcase template as the home page displaying sticky posts in the slider. I have a page called 'blog' set as the default posts page. Since I have any featured posts displaying as sticky posts on the homepage slider I would like to 'hide featured posts' from the default 'posts page' (ie the blog) - as they always appear at the top.

    Any help gratefully received.

    You'd need to exclude the sticky posts from the main Lop using a custom query. See:

    Used the solution below filtering them out in functions.php as posted in


    function mychildtheme_filter_pre_get_posts( $query ) {
        if ( is_page( get_option( 'page_for_posts' ) ) ) {
            $query->set( 'ignore_sticky_posts', true );
        return $query;
    add_filter( 'pre_get_posts', 'mychildtheme_filter_pre_get_posts' );

    Hi Radley.

    First off you need to be sure to be using a "child" of your theme (i.e. a copy that you can edit, not the original theme itself). You can read up on it here or many posts on the forum: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    I added the code to the bottom of the functions.php, which was fine for me, although not sure if your theme uses the same methods and stickies as twenty eleven. Keep a copy of your original code as a backup then give it a go - you can always revert back to original if it doesn't work. As long as you are using a child theme then you shouldn't need to change mychildtheme.

    Have you tried the support for the theme? http://wordpress.org/support/theme/pinboard
