I'm loving the Skeptical format by WooThemes, but ...
Skeptical format has an attractive "featured posts" bar across the bottom of the screen to promote three posts. You indicate which posts go there using the "Sticky" attribute for posts.
As far as I can tell, the Sticky attribute will always also put blog posts at the top of your home page. So there's no way round it: the "Featured" posts are always going to be the three at the top of your home page, whether because of recency or because of the sticky attribute.
I can see that there might be a point in this for individual posts and page, but on the home page it simply repeats what is already there.
Is there a way of choosing featured posts without also sticking them to the top of the home page? I've tried to find an option that would stop sticky posts sticking to the top of the page, or even hide them from overall indices, but failed.
It seems a way to arrange things, but perhaps this behaviour is easy to avoid if you have your own installation, and that's why it's in the template.
(I did try to find info on WooThemes site, but you can only go to their fora with a subscription. Which is fair enough - they're only trying to make a living out of great design, after all.)
The blog I need help with is veganoption.wordpress.com.
