Help!

It's my birthday next Friday and I want to offer some blog candy, but I can't for the life of me work out how to make a 'sticky post.' Blogger help doesn't seem to recognise the phrase! Can any of you lovely people tell me how to do it?

With lots of gratitude -

Hi Mags

I hope you are OK.

To make your post stick at the top of your blog do your post as normal and then go back into it by going to your dashboard and go into edit posts and open up the post you want to make "sticky".

Go to the bottom and click on "post options"

This brings up a new set of options.

Set date and time should be showing the time you actually posted.

Go in and alter the date to the date you want your sticky to end .. .. but don't delete the whole date in one go .. . you always need to leave the slashes in place .. .. highlight just the first two numbers and change these. Then the next two then the last two (if you want it to stay there until next year LOL!!). But always leave the slashes in place.

Once you have done that hit "publish" again and the date of your post should change to the date you chose and should stay at the top until then.

Hope it works for you Mags and that you have a happy birthday too!!!

Love Jules xx

Mags...you need to publish your post and then after publishing it you want to edit it and down near the bottom left there is a link post options, click this and then at the right hand side there is an option to change the date and time, change it to whenever you want the candy to end and it will stay as the first post on your blog regardless how many posts you make up the the time you end it.

Sorry, can't help you I'm afraid. I've never been able to do it either! But I'll be coming back to check out this post to see if anyone can give you (us!) the answer :-) Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx

Hi Mags, if you want the candy to stay at the top of your page, publish your post as normal then go back into your post and change the date you want your candy to end and then it should stay at the top of your page. Hope this helps!

Once you've published your post Mags...go back in and edit your post under 'post options' change the date and time to when you want your candy to finish and it will stay at the top of your blog as a sticky :) Donna x
