    I am using the Copyblogger child theme. My menu is 4 pages plus 2 categories. I would like to know how to make the first post in each of the categories (NOT the site’s static front page) ‘sticky’.

    These 2 categories represent 2 products (I will add another couple later) and I just want the first post to aways be at the top of subsequent posts within each category.

    I suspect this might mean fiddling with the Copyblogger theme code, which is WAY beyond my ability. ANybody have any ideas – or would be interested in quoting for creating a custom solution?

    Thanks

    Hi Adrian.

    There are a couple of plugins which I think might do what you want;

    hi

    I tried these plugins with my child theme and neither worked

    [i have PAGES set up with a custom field  query_args and the value set cat=whatever the category ID is -- so they shown posts from a specific category]

    is there anything i need to remove or add in the Genesis themes options to correct this or is there another reason why they would not work?

    one of the pages is here – http://www.oldconna.com/members-section/competition-results/

    thanks

    Phil
