New 'sticky' posts on showcase home page no longer working

  1. I'm not sure why, but I'm having some trouble with the static front page on my blog. It's been up for about a week, and I didn't have any issues with it until yesterday. I would tag selected posts as 'sticky' and they would appear in the showcase block at the top of the page. Yesterday, for whatever reason, I opened my blog to find that the page I use as the front page had disappeared. I made a new version of this page, and everything looks exactly the same, but for whatever reason, only the old sticky posts are displayed on the showcase and new sticky posts are not. I haven't reached the maximum number of showcase posts, as I only have 5 at the moment.

    The blog I need help with is mostlyharmlessscience.wordpress.com.

  2. @timethief Exactly what I was doing before, and I've tried it now again with no luck. The showcase page works and is displayed as the front page, but new sticky posts won't add to the showcase.

  3. I'm sorry I don't know how to help so you will have to wait for another Volunteer to assist you.

  4. Thanks for the help. Do you know if there's someone in particular I can tag who can help?

  5. No there is no specific person I was thinking of and adding a tag will not produce a Volunteer. I'll tag this thread for Themes Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  6. Thanks.

  7. You're welcome. Do note that there is very little visible Staff presence on the support forums on the weekends. They work forward through threads with the earliest datestamps and timestamps to those with the most recent ones.

  8. Exactly what I was doing before

    Not really:

    The images you'll upload from your computer need to be 750px wide or wider.

  9. Wow, that was totally it! I can't believe such a small detail changes everything. Thanks!

  10. Hi there, it looks like justpi got you the info you needed to resolve this. :) Please let me know if there's anything else I can do!
