How to Keep a Post at the Top of Your Blog

27th January 2020

In our recent post comparing posts to pages in WordPress we learned that posts by default are listed by order of post-date, with newest posts showing at the top, but what happens if you have written a post that you want to keep at the top of the list even when you've added newer posts?

The good news is, WordPress has an option to stick a post to the top of the blog page.

The process of sticking a post is quick and easy. Whether you're writing a new post, or editing an existing post, the first thing you'll need to do is click on the "Document" option on the right hand side:

Once there, you will see several options, one of which is "Stick to the top of the blog".

Simply place a checkmark in the box and then click on "Publish" at the top if it is a new post, or "Update" if you are editing an already published post.

The post should now remain at the top of your blog even when you add new posts.
