I took out the widget and it does display the sticky posts.
Can you tell me where the Show Post Widget code is ?
I prefer the Post Widget’s “Show teasers/list of posts with thumbs”.
Would like to study the code to see whether I can include sticky posts within the widget.
Possibly, but right now it uses get_posts, which is a simpler way of retrieving posts. And unfortunately doesn’t support sticky posts.
We’ll try and review this next time we are updating the widgets.
But there are other considerations. Other uses of this widget want sticky posts ignored, so it implies there will need to be more configuration options. We are always reluctant to add more options to these widgets because we want things kept simple. There are other plugins that allow you query posts more comprehensively.
