We have a very quick and easy blog tip for you this week – how to create a “sticky post” for your blog.
What do we mean by sticky post?
Normally a post will slip further down your blog as you publish fresh content – but by making a post “sticky” it can stay at the top of your main blog page regardless of the date you originally published it.
Why would you want to make a post sticky?
Maybe you have a popular blog post you would like to highlight, or an offer or event you would like to give prominence to, by making the post sticky this will help keep it on display for as long as you wish.
How to make posts sticky
While still in the edit mode of your post, go to the publish options box to the right of your edit screen. Click edit on the Visibility option. This will bring up a drop down menu which includes the option “stick this post to the front page.” Check the box and hit the ok button.
That’s all there is to it. When you wish to remove a sticky post, simply go back into the edit mode and uncheck the box. You also have the option to go back at any time to any of your posts to make them sticky.
Do you use the sticky post function on your blog? What kind of posts do you like to keep highlighted?
