In the post editor, you’ll find a checkbox you can click to stick the post to the front of the blog.

Sticky Post Setting

If you’re using the Classic Editor, locate the Publish box on the right side. Click the “Edit” link next to the Visibility setting, and a few new options will appear.

Among the new options, you’ll see a checkbox labeled, “Stick this post to the front page.” Check that box, click the “OK” button, and update your Post.

Your Post will now stay displayed at the top of your site.

Can I Stick More than One Post at the Top?

Yes, you can use this setting to keep as many Posts as you want at the top. If you have more than one “sticky” Post, they will sort chronologically, like normal Posts.
