By default WordPress displays your posts on your front page in reverse-chronological order, with your most recent posts at the top of the list.
If you want to highlight your post you can mark it as Sticky. This tells WordPress to always display the post on the front page and above your other posts.
How to sticky
You can mark a post as sticky by checking the option that says “Stick this post to the front page” in the Publish settings on any post.
Or you can mark a post as sticky by checking the option that says “Make this post sticky” in the Quick Edit options when viewing the Edit Page.
- It’s a good idea to only sticky a couple of posts at anytime.
- Before you publish a new sticky post remember to unstick an old post.
- Sticky should not be used for every post.
- Cycle your sticky posts at least every couple of weeks. Google loves fresh content.
- Check your WordPress theme supports sticky posts.
For you sticky posts to show correctly make sure your WordPress theme supports sticky posts. The best way of checking this is to sticky a post and check your front page. If they don’t show try selecting a different WordPress theme.
