How do I create a sticky post?

Sticky posts let you highlight one post at the top of your blog, regardless of when you posted it.

Let’s say you always want to display at the top of your blog:

  • An “About Me” post
  • Your most recent original long-form blog post
  • An introductory video
  • A quote that you live by, or
  • An advertisement

The sticky post feature allows you to do any of these things. With the sticky tag you can highlight whatever you want in your blog’s top spot. (The theme will not display the sticky post twice on your blog and it will only appear at the top of your blog.)

Here’s how you set it up: In the customize section, enter the sticky tag and use that tag on the post that you would like to always display at the top of your blog. The most recent blog post with the sticky tag will always appear at the top.

These steps will work with any of our Tumblr themes.
