Last month, we polled our readers to find out how many use the sticky posts feature in WordPress. Out of 322 votes, 66% said no while 34% said yes.
Use cases included, featuring content in a slider, portfolio sites, and using it on a directory site. For those who sticky one post at a time, I discovered a convenient plugin that removes the sticky flag from previous sticky posts. There Can Be Only One, developed by Alex Jones, ensures that only one sticky post is published at a time.
There are no options to configure. Simply install, activate, and configure which post you want to sticky. When using this plugin, you no longer have to remove the sticky flag from the previous post which saves time and effort. There Can Only Be One is Jones’ first plugin submitted to the plugin directory and he’s interested to hear any feedback or suggestions you have to improve it.
