Sticky Notes Plus?

  1. Totally great to have the Sticky Notes option, and great coincidental timing as it was something that crossed my mind.

    I was thinking that a top 1, 2, 3, option would be great...maybe let us keep more than a few at the top of each page? Maybe just the default could be chronological. Be great to have the option to structure it further.

  2. the best way to have your idea heard by staff is by contact them directly. Contact Support

  3. I think we're getting carried away here. If you want more information in the sticky, simply edit the post and add to it with a bold header above the new information.

  4. You could also create a post that has links to your other posts on your blog
    and turn that into a sticky...

  5. @teck, that is a good idea. Make a sticky and call it "My Hot Posts" or something like that.

  6. @thesacredpath,
    It sure would help keeping a reader longer on our sites if they have links
    right in front of them instead of having them playing the guessing game
    were to find those "Hot Articles"

  7. Also it could help in the manner of bringing in extra hits compared to one
    extra hit from the static page...

    Off-topic: Hey, what appended to your avatar? Doesn't look so scary anymore...hehe
    On-topic: Coming from TypePad, this was one of the features I missed most in WordPress, apart from a couple more, like batch assigning or changing categories, but I'm glad to see that WordPress is catching up with that. A sticky post is certainly better than having a sticky text widget, which many people would just overlook, so this is great progress.

    Don't get me wrong I like skulls & all but it didn't

  13. Remember: the more you put between your reader's eyes and your first fresh blog post, the more likely they are to click away.

    Thanks Raincoaster. I never thought of this. Great call. I will remember this and make some adjustments.

    Okay, time for bed before I make yet another mistake. Good night everyone.

  17. I'm happy for the people who will use the sticky feature. But I don't think it's a big enough deal to be worth the prominent place it gets on the post page. It's above the fold, next to the text window, while things that most of us use for every post, like categories and tags, still languish lower down below the fold.
    This is probably bugging me more than it should...

  18. Categories and tags I'm pretty sure will have the option of being moving up to the right of the text area with next big upgrade - or possibly sooner. Sticky posts will not hit the self-hosted version until the release of 2.7 (probably a couple months off).

  19. Interesting thanks for sharing thesacredpath, :)

  20. You're welcome. We seem to have the wordpress gods smiling on us here at .COM and are getting things ahead of time lately. (We be the guinea pigs)

  21. (*kof!) ;)

  22. @jennifer,

    (*kof!)

    I'm puzzled on what that means... :(

  23. @jennifer, yes a kof! should go with that.

    :-)

  24. @Tecko7

    Thanks for your idea!
    Done in my blog.

  25. You're welcome! vimokshananda,

  26. Does anyone have what he thinks is a good example of a sticky post they want to mention? I've been thinking of doing it as a brief introduction to my blog, but I'm not sure it's a good idea. I'd rather see what others are doing before I take the plunge.

  27. Yay! With the Sandbox and CSS upgrade you can have some pretty interesting stuff to a sticky
    <div id="post-5328" class="post sticky hentry category-kurz-notiert tag-verlinkt p1 publish author-daniel-fallenstein y2008 m09 d08 h18">

    e.g.:

    div.post.p1.sticky{
    background: yellow;
    border: 5px solid red;
    }
    
    div.post.p1.sticky div.entry-meta, div.post.p1.sticky h2.entry-title{
    display:none;
    }

    The only thing to beat this would be turning widgets from sidebar only into header, footer, sidebar widgets...
