    Wordpress Front Page Question
    Does anyone know if there is a plugin, setting or hack to all me to set a specific post to be on the front page? I don't want a static page or my last X number of post. I just want to have the ability to select a post and keep it on the front page.

    Thanks
    Thanks,
    Doug

    There's a WP Plugin
    It's called Genki Announcement - don't know if it's been updated to work with the latest release, though. I've used it in the past.

    Good luck...

    It's actually very simple. Go to the post that you want to stick to the front page, click edit, click "visibility" and click "Stick this post".

    If that is the only post you want on the front page, then set your number of posts to 1.

    It's a new function built into WP since about version 2.7, I think. (Current WP version is 2.8.4).

    In fact, some of the plugins designed to do "feature" or "sticky" posts no longer work since WP has built the function loxly described into the software itself.

    Nifty feature -- I've used it on a couple of blogs.
