How to: Make a Sticky Post on Blogger

JUST FOR YOU ROSITTA - I've posted it again:

Arleta from Northern LP Michigan has asked how do you make a sticky post.

For those of you not in the know, a sticky post is a post that will always stay at the top of your page no matter what other posts you make.

The easiest way to do this is to post date your post by chosing the latest date you can from the 'time & date' menu - see the screenshot below.

More experienced bloggers will post a copy of the actual post in their template so that it is always displayed. Here are some very brief instructions to do this: view the source of your blog page and scroll down to the post that you want to copy. Once you've copied the post, open the template and scroll down to where you want the post to appear on your blog. Simply paste it, save and republish your blog.

This is more tedious and probably unnecessary for minor posts or notices but if you want to venture down this path, I suggest you Google 'Sticky Post on Blogger' before attempting it so that you can get a better explanation and understanding of the implications of doing it either way.

If you're not that bothered, stick with the post dating option. It's crass. It's dirrrrty. It's cheap. But hey, it works!

So what is the poiint of having a "sticky post". I can't see one personally. Ciao

Sorry, not as technically savvy as you, but personally I get bugged when I see a blog with the same post. I'm always trying to find the new stuff, but that's just me, like I said, not a technically savvy old broad. Cheers.

thank you Bernie, glad your back. Glad your feeling better. I changed to beta today, so far most stuff is good except for flickr. Can't seem to post pictures using the flickr badge. You know, the copy and paste feature. Hopefully I'll figure it out. Now for a nice three colum template!!! :-)
