"it appears to me you only have pages the sticky post"
Can you rephrase that sentence?
And yes I've read both of those. But I still don't understand. It says "you have created any sticky posts, those will appear before the other posts. Posts can be found in the Archives, Categories, Recent Posts, and other widgets. Posts are also displayed in the RSS feed of the blog."
So I have .:] Twisted Rats and a category under the Teams & Clans widget
I want to make .:Twisted Rats Roster a sticky in the .:]Twisted Rats category.
but it's not becoming a sticky, it still moves down on the post list just like any other post.
