I tested in 2 blogs, and confirmed sticky function (annoucement function is ok) in WP-sticky is not working with this theme.

Any idea on how to tweak around this problem

Can you give more details? What is the announcement function, I didn't know about that?

Also, what's not working with Sticky? If you set a post to sticky at Publish -> Visibility -> Stick this post to the front page, then it should "stick" on top of the home page (and only the home page) and be highlighted like this post here on top: http://wp27.bytesforall.com/

Or does changing the sticky CSS style not work at Atahualpa Theme Options -> Post/Page Styling -> POST Container: Sticky?

Or you may have expected it to stick on more pages than just the front page?

WP-Sticky is a plugin, not the home page sticky feature with wordpress 2.7.

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-sticky/

This plugin comes with two options, 1. "Annocement" is to sticK a post as a home page or main page. 2. "Sticky" is to stick a post on the top of a same category.

Second function of "sticky" of this plugin cannot stick a post to the top inside the same category. This plugins works perfectly with other themes, but not with atahualpa. I believe atahualpa scripting clashes or overrides this plugin.

Did you use this code

PHP Code:
                         <?php post_sticky_status(); ?>
Where did you put it, which file, line number or before/after what?

No, actually no coding is manually inserted. WP-Sticky is managed from the dashboard and no coding insertion is needed.

Thanks. You are the most helpful free theme creator. I believe your theme will be a hit and reward on your efforts will come naturally.

The problem may not due to your theme. I have three blogs in the same server. I installed theme which work with WP-Sticky to this problematic blog and same problem remains.

The only different is blog works with WP-Sticky only install with a theme while other blogs are installed with more than one theme.

I have consulted the creator of WP-sticky. Nothing wrong with your theme.

The problem is WP-sticky only stick to category based on post edited date. Any posts after the edited date of the sticky post will still on top of it.

Thx.

I just downloaded WP-Sticky today myself in an attempt to get the date off the sticky post. Sticky posts work fine in WP and/or Atahualpa except for that one pesky issue. There is a option in WP-Sticky to have no date - but sure enough in my Atahualpa blog (only one I've got), the date is still obstinately there.

I feel as some others discussing this elsewhere have said that the minute people see that date on the top sticky post, they will think the site is not being updated unless I go in constantly to update the pubish date. They will not see the second post until they scroll down. This blog's audience too will be older and less web-savvy folks, so I really wanted the date out of there.

If you guys find a way to get rid of the date, that would be cool...
Thanks!

Greetings. In my search to be able to simply put a single post on the home page of my site: http://5280fan.com I came across the WP-Sticky plugin. I've installed it, but I too seem to have some unknown issues in making it work with this theme. The theme is great and I'll do without the plugin/feature I'm trying to do if it cannot be done... I'm just hoping it can.

I simply want to be able to "feature" a post on my home page as some type of "announcement" or "latest" etc. feature. I'm just not able to figure out how to do this.

Thanks for any direction you might be able to offer.

To remove the whole post footer on sticky posts add a HTML/CSS Inserts -> CSS Insert

HTML Code:
div.sticky div.post-footer {
display: none;
}

You're running WP 2.7.1 which has an integrated sticky function. So if you just want to stick a post to the top the homepage, you'd not need WP Sticky

Atahualpa is fully prepared for the internal WP sticky feature, i.e. it can be styled at the menu tab "Post/Page Styling"
