It’s surprisingly easier than I thought it would be – and after a quick search with our friend Google, I found the answer.

In versions of WordPress after 2.7, there’s a new option that’s been added to make posts sticky.

It’s not in the full add or edit post option, but when you go to the quick edit post option you’ll see a little checkbox there for making the post sticky.

Of course, all this does is make sure your post stays at the top of the page – which is kind of handy to ensure that, on your homepage at least, there is a consistent message available.
