Support » Plugin: WP-Sticky » Warning: Missing argument 2 error :(

  • Resolved diggeridoo


    Hi, I’ve found this plugin very helpful but I got this error message when activating the plugin:

    Warning: Missing argument 2 for sticky_the_title() in /var/www/vhost/ on line 199

    I have bbpress installed also, not sure if it has some relationship with this issue.

    Do you know how can I solve this warning?

    I have the same error after upgrading to the latest version with WP4.

    I’ve amended the post that has the sticky and still no joy.

    @diggeridoo, @mtgamberwesbitedesign: I suggest deactivating all plugins and switching to the default theme to see if it works.

    Because the_title ( has 2 arguments and hence the error doesn’t make sense.
    . I believe some plugin/theme conflict ins happening on your end.



    I realised that I didn’t need the plugin anyway since WordPress can make the post a sticky now (on the home page anyway) so I deleted the plugin.

    I’m using the plugin on other sites but I won’t upgrade until I have more time to look into it since those sites are live and very important to their business owners.

    Yes, WP has this own sticky post feature but this plugin is still useful in some circumstances, i.e. when you have a weird conflict within a plugin/theme evolving wp native ‘sticky’ label (as in my case).
    This plugin adds a new category ‘Announce’ that helps to avoid that conflicts in a simple way and also allow to add a custom prefix to the highlighted post.

    Due the last version is giving this argument error, I’ve installed the former version and it seems to work fine.
    Maybe this might give a clue to Lester to figure out where the problem is..
    Anyway, although this plugin is deprecated, still is –as explained– useful and I encourage to the developer to keep it healthy if possible 🙂

    I think I might have found the problem

    Find On function sticky_the_title( $content, $id ) {
    Replace: function sticky_the_title( $content, $id = null ) {

    Let me know if it works and I will make the fix

    Hi, I’ve tested this and the error message doesn’t appears anymore! 🙂
    It looks that change solves the problem!


    But before updating the plugin please check an issue I’m opening in another thread.
