Have an important post that you'd like to remain on top of all of your other posts? This is called a sticky post because, well, it sticks in place. :)
There are a few ways to create a sticky post. I'm going to show you the easiest way I've found to do it. No need to do any more work than you have to!
To create a sticky post:
1. Create the post.
2. Publish the post. You must publish the post before proceeding in order to make this work.
3. Edit the post.
4. Click on 'Post Options' (above 'Publish Post'- circled in red above).If you are using the Updated Editor, you will need to then select "Scheduled at".
5. Change the date and the time of the post (underlined in green above) to a date and a time that reflect how long you would like for the post to remain at the top. If you want the post at the top indefinitely, change the year to one in the distant future, like I did in the example above (2013). :)
6. Click on 'Publish Post'.
Enjoy your sticky post! :)
*If you are just wanting to draw attention to a few sentences rather than a long post, I would consider creating an announcement instead.
