Sticky Posts not respected by Posts Widget
I have added a Posts Widget to my homepage, displaying six posts. When I make the last (sixth) post sticky, it is still listed as the last and not the first post (after clearing both my browser and WordPress cache). I have tried to sort by “Random” and “Custom Order” without luck. This is a multi-site, but that shouldn’t be a problem in this case(?)
Anyone else having trouble with making sticky posts actually stick?
Possible Answers to Your Question:
I can confirm it will honor stickies in 1.2.12 with Newest First enabled. Keep in mind you need to decrease the post count by however many stickies you have as the count is applied to the query on all posts, stickies excluded. Hope that makes sense.
