Template: Sticky

This is a sticky post.

There are a few things to verify:

  • The sticky post should be distinctly¬†recognizable¬†in some way in comparison to normal posts. You can style the .sticky class if you are using the post_class() function to generate your post classes, which is a best practice.
  • They should show at the very top of the blog index page, even though they could be several posts back chronologically.
  • They should still show up again in their chronologically correct postion in time, but without the sticky indicator.
  • If you have a plugin or widget that lists popular posts or comments, make sure that this sticky post is not always at the top of those lists unless it really is popular.

Markup: Title With Special Characters

Putting special characters in the title should have no adverse effect on the layout or functionality.

Special characters in the post title have been known to cause issues with JavaScript when it is minified, especially in the admin when editing the post itself (ie. issues with metaboxes, media upload, etc.).

Building the benchwork

Benchwork was created with clear pine 1X4s and, most importantly, metro shelving with wheeled casters. This makes the benchwork sturdy yet extremely lightweight and easily  repositionable.
