    I am using AStickyPostOrderER and it seems to not be working anymore. Perhaps because I recently updated my WordPress. Does anyone know of any alternatives. I have 3 posts that I need to show up in order in some categories.

    Does anyone have a recommendation?

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Lucabrasi,

    If the posts you are trying to make sticky are organized in a category, try taking them out of a category and see if the option for making the post sticky becomes available. Some users were reporting that sticky posts weren't working when the post was in a category.

    You could also try this plugin, it hasn't been updated in over 2 years but it might still work,

    This thread also contains some code that someone posted to be used in a theme's function.php file.

    Hope that helps,
