Sticky Tax

Descripcion

Sticky Tax enables posts to be made « sticky » within a specific category or tag. Ideal for cornerstone content or important stories, Sticky Tax lets blogs maintain chronological post archives, while keeping the most important content at the top of the list.

Why might I want this?

Let’s imagine Chris, a long-time blogger with lots of traffic coming to his site. He’s worked hard to categorize all of his content, but there are a few posts that he wants to make sure are the first thing people see when they hit a category landing page.

Using WordPress’ default behavior, these important pieces of content will eventually get lost behind pagination, just because they’re not the newest posts in the category.

With Sticky Tax, Chris can highlight the most important posts in a category, whether they were written last week or last year!

Usage

After installing and activating Sticky Tax, a new « Promote Post » meta box will appear on the post edit screen, with a list of terms for any public taxonomies registered on your site.

On the front-end

archive. Each sticky post even gets a .sticky-tax class added to it, enabling you to apply custom styling for your sticky content!
