Pinning A Blog Post In Fastpages
By default, posts are sorted by date on your homepage. However you may want one or more blog posts to always appear at the very top of your homepage. In otherwords, you may want certain posts to be “pinned” or “sticky”. To accomplish this, specify the
sticky_rank front matter in the order you would like your sticky posts to appear. Blog posts that do not set this parameter are sorted in the default way by date after the sticky posts.
For example, consider these three markdown posts
--- title: Post One sticky_rank: 1 ---
--- title: Post Two sticky_rank: 2 ---
--- title: Post Three ---
sticky_rank is specified, blog posts will first be sorted by sticky_rank in ascending order, then by date in descending order, so the order of these posts will appear like so:
sticky_rank the above posts would actually be sorted in reverse order due to the dates associated with each post.
