    I am using WP Robot to update my blog. (To do almost everything on my blog.) I think it would be better if each category on the blog had a post by me. I can write something decent, add a picture...make it pleasing to the eye of visitors. Is there a way to have the first post in each category be a post by me.

    I am using a plugin called "AStickyPostOrderER" It does put create a sticky post in each category, but it leaves the sticky post on the front page of my blog too. So it is stuck to the first page of my category (good) and it is stuck to the homepage (bad). This means that the homepage of my blog never changes. For repeat visitors it looks the same as the last time they were there.

    Any ideas on how to get around this problem. Google searches aren't bearing fruit. A search of wordpress . org site found me the above plug in but, that side effect doesn't make the medicine worth it.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Meta: Use the radio buttons to specify meta-stickyness, respectively:

    1. Super-sticky: Show before anything else (you can set a limit for how many posts from this cat or tag should be given this preferential treatment, e.g. if you want the latest post with the tag 'events' to show before anything else in any category listing that contains that post place 1 in the text field next to the 'events' tag and set it's radio button set to 'Super-sticky' )
    2. Sub-sticky: Show after individually ordered posts ('Sorties') for given view but before un-sorted posts
    3. Default: Treat normally (except for individually ordered posts)
    4. Droppy: Show only after everything else and remember to click 'update meta-stickyness' at the bottom of the page for your changes to, ahemmm, 'stick' . . .



      i think your settings are just wrong

    I changed it but that isn't quite what I want either. It knocked them from the front page but now they aren't stuck to the top of the category page. They are working their way off of it. But thanks for trying.
