    About Sticky Posts:
    In the Support/Forum page it says: <i> “Regular updates are what blogging’s all about, but sometimes you want to keep hot topics or other static info at the top of your posts. This feature has existed as Sticky Topics in the forums, but hasn’t been available on blogs. Until now.

    In the publishing options for each post you’ll now see “Stick this post to the front page.” </i>

    However, I am looking for the ”Stick this post to the front page“ on the Post page, but no such option is to be seen. Do all themes have the Sticky Post option??

    I am considering going back to Depo, so does Depo offer that option? Or no? I looked but could not find that option either.

    Aha, SENSUOUS CURMUDEON has an answer that I found: He said:
    <b> When you’re in edit mode, to the right of the screen, you’ll see an option that says “Visibility.” Hit the word “edit” next to that word and you’ll see the option to “Stick this post to the front page.” After you check that box, be sure to hit “OK” to complete the process. Then “update” the post. </b>
    __________________________________

    That is quite a bit clearer and precise than the original instructions on another page that say simply that the Sticky Post option is on the Post page.

    I still cant find it. Maybe there are some templates which don’t have the sticky posts?

    Hey timethief….any recommendations if the sticky option just isn’t there? I’ve looked and looked at this for a week now, and I’m pretty sure I’m not just overlooking it. It simply isn’t there.

    The site linked to your name is not a wordpress.com blog. If you are asking about a wp.com blog, we need a link. http:// ???

    I made a post on my site a while back about how to sticky a post, located here:
    http://wp.me/pFp4L-9

    I’ve gotten some comments about users not seeing it also, could you tell us what browser your using and where your looking? Make sure it’s a post and not a page too.

    Are any of the other options not there that should be? Here’s what else should show up:

    Not too sure now, but I think that it might have to be a public post to show up?

    hummusdude, is this your blog? http://hummusdude.wordpress.com/ If so, best to link it to your username and not your general website. It will save time later in the forums.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/post-visibility/ The Post must be a public Post and then click “Edit” next to Visibility to make the Sticky option appear. Check it, click OK and update or publish your Post.
