Post doesn't become sticky
I am making a website where I have moved the blog-function to a guestbook and thus having a text-page as index-page.
As first page in the guestbook I want to put a welcoming text that should remain on top.
I made the post sticky but I neither get the post to stay on top nor can I see any of the formatting of a sticky post.
I am using Atahualpa 3.4.4 and WP 2.9.1
Anyone out there that can help me?:o

what is the url and which post is the sticky?
Did you verify that the post is infact a sticky (dashboard->post->edit)?

the site isn't online sharp yet ( and not my site) so I'd rather not post the URl here. Wouldn't mind sending it in mail though.
Yes I did verify that the post is sticky. However, I made two posts at first to have a look at the formatting and only afterwards made the one I wanted sticky. Could it be because of that?

Can also add that although the post shows as sticky in the admin panel it doesn't show in the source-code. If it should.. since I've never seen what it should look like. :)

send me a private message with the url and I'll take a look. If you want me to really look, send me the admin id and PW - you can change them when I've finished looking.

the problem is that you do not have a post page, you have set your landing to be a static page, but have no post page selected. Add a new page called 'blog page' and at dashboard->settings->reading -- set the post page to be 'blog page'

You should now see your sticky post when you view 'blog page'
