    Hey,

    on our news page, we have a masonry gallery that outputs blog posts with categories.

    When I enable the sticky post option for a blog post it doesn’t get shown at the beginning of the grid.

    Thanks in advance

    Kind regards

    Hey emilconsor,

    Thank you for the inquiry.

    Sticky posts are not included in the masonry’s default query, so you will have to adjust the query manually using the avia_masonry_entries_query filter.

    add_filter("avia_masonry_entries_query", function($query, $params) {
    	$include = array();
    	$sticky = get_option( 'sticky_posts' );
    
    	$args = array(
    	  'taxonomy' => $params['taxonomy'],
    	  'post__not_in' => $sticky,
    	);
    	$posts = get_posts( $args );
    
    	foreach($posts as $post) {
    		$include[] = $post->ID;
    	}
    
    	$include = array_merge($sticky, $include);
    
    	// convert values of the $include from string to int
    	function sti($n)
    	{
    		settype($n, 'int');
    		return $n ;
    	}
    
    	$include = array_map("sti", $include);
    
    	$query['post__in'] = $include;
    	$query['orderby'] = 'post__in'; // sort items based on the post__in value
    
    	return $query;
    }, 10, 2);

    Hi Ismael,

    thanks for the snippet, this works – but only kind of.
    The sticky post is on top – which is what we wanted. But the post will be displayed twice once you “load more” entries. Is there a way to exclude the sticky post from the query once it’s “on top”?

    Hi,

    Thank you for the update.

    We could exclude the sticky posts when loading more posts but we have to modify the config-templatebuilder/avia-shortcodes/av-helper-masonry.php file and replace line 1565..

    $query = apply_filters( 'avia_masonry_entries_query', $query, $params );
    

    ,.. with:

    $query = apply_filters( 'avia_masonry_entries_query', $query, $params, $ajax );
    

    We can then use the post__not_in parameter to exclude the sticky posts when loading more posts.

    add_filter("avia_masonry_entries_query", function($query, $params, $ajax) {
    	if($ajax) {
    		$query["post__not_in"] = array(1, 254);
    	}
    	return $query;
    }, 10, 3);
    

    Make sure to replace the array value with the actual IDs of the sticky posts.

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    Hi Ismael,

    thanks for that. I tried overriding the av-helper-masonry by creating a shortcodes-directory in my child theme and loading them (just as described in your documentation with “avia_load_shortcodes”) but that doesnt override the helper. Is there another way to accomplish that? I would prefer to not touch the parent theme.

    Best regards

    Hi,

    It is working correctly on our end. Did you add the $ajax parameter in the avia_masonry_entries_query within the query_entries function or method? There are two instances of the avia_masonry_entries_query filter in the av-helper-masonry.php file.

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    Hi Ismael,
    strangely it is not on my end.
    I’ve changed the filter in the functions.php to

    add_filter("avia_masonry_entries_query", function($query, $params, $ajax = false) {
      if($ajax) {
        $sticky = get_option( 'sticky_posts' );
        $query["post__not_in"] = $sticky;
      }
      return $query;
    }, 10, 3);
    

    otherwise my page was broken.

    Yes, I did add that. Do you have an idea why it is not working on my end?

    #1324896

    Sorry, it is working now. My fault!
    Thank you Ismael.

    Hi,

    Glad to know that it is now working and looks like you have created a better solution. Thanks for sharing! We will close this thread for now.

    Have a nice day.

    Best regards,
    Ismael
