Stick a Post to the Front Page using Sticky Posts

Print Friendly

By default, blogs display posts in reverse chronological order on the home page with the latest post at the top.

There isn’t a way to display posts in chronological order however you can makes some posts sticky so the post will be “stuck” to the top of the blog’s front page.

Examples of where teachers might use a sticky post are for notifying students of important dates and provide assignment information. This option should only used for one or two posts on a blog.

It’s really simple to do — only takes 3 simple steps!

Once you have written your post just:

1.  Click on Edit in the Visibility area of the Publish module

Click on Edit
2.  Check the option that says “Stick this post to the front page” and click OK

Select Stick this post

3.  Click Publish

All posts page
