By default, blogs display posts in reverse chronological order on the home page with the latest post at the top.
You can make 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.
The order of posts can be changed using the Post type order plugin.
Using the Publish Module
Once you have written your post just:
1. Click on Edit in the Visibility area of the Publish module
2. Check the option that says “Stick this post to the front page” and click OK
3. Click Publish
Using your All Posts page
Alternatively, you can use Quick Edit on your All Posts screen to make a published post sticky as follows:
1. Go to Posts > All Posts
2. Hover your mouse over the title of a post you want to make into a sticky post and click Quick Edit
3. Select ‘Make this post sticky’ and click Update
