Visibility of Sticky Posts in iTheme2

    I’m using iTheme2 for my blog, where you could have your featured posts appear in a slider. I would like to keep the slider, but I would also like all my posts, sticky or not, to appear in full length under the slider. I always make my 6 latest posts sticky so that they appear in the slider, but I still want them to appear in full length in the homepage (and under the slider). Otherwise, my 6 latest posts are in the slider, and the full-length posts begin with the 7th latest and go on from there.
    Is there any way to make these posts visible using css?
    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is futbolpulse.com.

    Hi there,
    I tagged your first thread for Staff support yesterday. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/visibility-of-sticky-posts?replies=7#post-1147513

    We Volunteers don’t have an answer to that question. All we can say is that we observe what follows.

    Though Staff are located all over the world and there are Staff who are working away invisible to us on this support forum, we usually experience a visible Staff presence on these peer support forums during weekdays and primarily during prime time on the internet for North America.

    Support Staff frequently choose to direct the Support contact link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ to these peer support forums on weekends, holidays, when they attend quarterly meet-ups and/or when they have a backlog or have lots of code changes to be made.

    Creating duplicate threads is not a wise thing to do. When we create a support ticket by contacting Support Staff by using the contact link http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ or by flagging a thread here in the forums for their assistance it’s important to understand they have a backlog.

    They deal with the support tickets and threads on these peer support forums with the earliest dates first. So if we contact them more than once on the same issue or bump threads or create duplicate threads the date moves forward and it takes longer to get help.

    Sorry for making another thread. I didn’t know it would make the process longer.
    Thanks for your help!

    Not to worry as the first thread is still open and you can return to it. :)

    Is there any way to make these posts visible using css?

    I’m sorry to say that is not something you can do with CSS code. CSS is for editing content that already exists on a page, it cannot add dynamic content where it doesn’t already exist. So if the theme doesn’t offer an option to show full width posts that are also sticky posts, then there is not a way to change that functionality with code for editing the appearance of already existing elements such as CSS.

    http://futbolpulse.com/ looks really fantastic btw. The background image really puts it over the top!

    @zandyring posted a possible workaround for your question in another thread:

    I don’t think i’m going to use the duplicate post idea though, but is there any way you can suggest to the theme developers to create such and option?

    Thanks!

    We have a forum just for such ideas, can you make a case for it there and include your reasons for wanting the update?

    Not every idea on that list will be implemented, but we do review the list from time to time to look for popular requests.
