Last week, I release a relatively major update to Category Sticky Post. For those of you who have been reading this blog for some time, you know that I released the first version back in August of last year.

Since then, there are been several minor updates most of which were primary bug fixes or hot fixes.

Though this update is still a relatively minor update, it introduces a few things both behind-the-scenes and functionality-wise that should improve how it works especially with posts having multiple categories

Category Sticky Post For WordPress

Category Sticky Post

The category sticky post homepage (sporting the new header, no less).

The most recent update brings with it the following set of changes:

  • Posts that belong to multiple categories are properly styled when marked as sticky for a single post
  • Removed certain styles that caused sticky posts to look odd in certain themes, including twentytwelve
  • Documenting all of the functions in the source code using PHPDoc conventions
  • Fully removing custom.css support as this was something that was not well-received by some of the lower-budget hosts

For the developer types who read this, this plugin also uses an implementation of the singleton pattern (which we’ve discussed at length in the comments of this post) to instantiate the plugin’s class.
