Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Posts marked sticky don't show up with sticky formatting

I've been loving the configurability of Atahualpa, but now having a problem with sticky posts. It's my first time using stickies so maybe I'm missing something. I have a post marked sticky from the dashboard (and Wordpress confirms to me that it's sticky), yet the formatting that I've indicated in the Atahualpa options doesn't show up. And when I view the source code, there's nothing in that post that indicates that wp is registering the post as sticky. Do I need to change something in index.php for it to register sticky posts?

Test site is at http://www.genevieveraymond.com/michcitizenaction/. It's that top post. Currently I have a graphic in there, but if I can get sticky formatting to work, I'd like to do my best to mimic that image with css.

Thanks,
Genevieve

What version of WP are you using?

And would you confirm that it is infact a sticky? (go to WP dashboard -> Posts -> edit -. and look to see that the Visibility has STICKY checked off.

I've just tested this with Atahualpa 333 on both WP 2.7.1 and 2.8 and I get different results than you do. There should be the word 'sticky' in the begining <div> for the post.

Hi juggledad,

I'm using WP 2.8 and visibility is definitely STICKY--says so in visibility and in list of posts. But when I view source, here's the div tag: <div class="post-58 post hentry category-homepage" id="post-58">. No sticky. Using Atahualpa 3.3.3. No idea where to go with this one, so I'd love any suggestions.

Again, page is http://www.genevieveraymond.com/michcitizenaction/, top post (graphic).

thanks again,
genevieve

Oh, also, just thought of this--did I read somewhere that you can't check a category for a sticky post? Because right now I have a query_posts to include only posts from the "homepage" category in index.php. So the only way to get that post to show up on the homepage was to stick it in the homepage category. Maybe that's doing something?

Okay this is getting weird and I'm very confused. When I take the query_posts out, exerpts only on homepage stops working. But sticky post DOES work. When I put query_posts back in, excerpts only on homepage starts working again, but sticky post doesn't register as sticky.

I know very little about php, to be clear--I just mess with it to get WP to do what I need it to do and according to other people's directions, but haven't taken the time to learn the logic of it. So not really sure why this would be happening.

(And I have applied excerpts only fix.)

When you mention query Posts, are you talking about the plugin?
