Tag Sticky Post For WordPress

Tag Sticky Post for WordPress is a plugin that allows you to mark a post as sticky within a specific tag archive. It works exactly like the typical sticky post functionality within WordPress, except that it’s specifically for tag archives.

This means that if you have a set of articles under one tag, you can mark one to always appear at the top of the tag archive.

This plugin came out of a direct need that I have for my own site: All of my projects are located in the Projects category, but each project has its own tag.

The problem is that I often write a post introducing the project, what it does, why I wrote it, and where you can find more information about it. But over time, I write posts that cover various updates or other issues about the project ultimately pushing the introductory post – arguably the most important post – lower into the archive.

The thing is, that post is the one I want readers to see as soon as they visit the archive. To solve this problem, I wrote Tag Sticky Post. You can see the plugin in action in the Comment Images archive.

Tag Sticky Post has the following set of features:

  • Allows you to select which tag in which to stick a post
  • Will display the post on the top of the first page of the archive just like WordPress’ sticky posts
  • Will only allow you to stick a single post per tag
  • Displays whether or not a post is stuck in a tag on the Post Edit dashboard
  • Provides light styling that should look good in most themes
  • Is available on each post editor page
  • Is fully localized and ready for translation

Be sure to check out a variety of screenshots, too.

You can install it from the WordPress Dashboard or download it from the plugin’s homepage.
