Sticky Clicky Star Plugin Makes it Easy to Manage WordPress Sticky Posts
Sticky Clicky Star sounds like a band name, doesn’t it? It’s actually a plugin for WordPress that makes managing sticky posts easier than ever!
What are sticky posts?
Sticky Posts came to WordPress in version 2.7, allowing you to mark a post to be placed at the top of the front page of posts. Many themes utilize the sticky posts feature to display “featured posts.”
Turn sticky posts on and off with 1 click!
The SM Sticky Clicky Star plugin lets you manage sticky posts by adding a new column to the posts page for a sticky star that will turn the sticky status on or off.
This is a simple plugin that does two main things:
- Uses builtin WordPress functions to reduce any possibilities of conflicts with other themes and plugins
- A nice looking star icon uses AJAX upon click to immediately save your posts’ sticky status
There’s no options page – the only thing the plugin does is add an additional column on the “posts” page for the Sticky Clicky Star.
Marking a post as sticky can be a troublesome thing to remember for the average WordPress user. Ordinarily, one would need to find the checkbox that says “Stick this post to the front page” under the Visibility menu of the post editor. This is definitely not an intuitive placement. The SM Sticky Clicky Star plugin will make sticky posts a lot more user friendly. Download it for free from the WordPress plugin repository.
