Category Sticky Post

Category Sticky Post for WordPress is a plugin that allows you to mark a post as sticky within a specific category archive. It works exactly like the typical sticky post functionality within WordPress, except that it’s specifically for category archives.

To use it, first activate the plug-in. Once you do, you’ll see a new “Category Sticky” field appear above “Categories.”

If you choose a category from the drop-down, the post that you’re currently editing or creating will automatically “stick” to the top of the category archive. This is particularly useful if you’re using a custom menu with category archives–it will allow you to post an introduction, say, or some other bit of contextual information for the archive.

That’s it! As always, let us know if you have any questions.
