    Hello,

    I have several post grids on my website, and would like to implement a solution allowing sticky posts to be actually sticki-ed (aka, first in the grid).
    There is a solution on these forums, but it doesn’t seem to be working anymore :

    // sticky posts
    add_filter('avia_blog_post_query', 'avia_blog_post_query_mod', 10, 2);
    function avia_blog_post_query_mod($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['posts_per_page'] = 6;
    	$query['orderby'] = 'post__in'; // sort items based on the post__in value
    	return $query;
    }

    I also found another code, but this one doen’t work if the styckied post is too far down the query (ex, 7th in the query whereas the grid onmy shows 6) :

    add_filter('the_posts', 'bump_sticky_posts_to_top');
    function bump_sticky_posts_to_top($posts) {
     foreach($posts as $i => $post) {
      if(is_sticky($post->ID)) {
       $stickies[] = $post;
       unset($posts[$i]);
       }
      }
     if(!empty($stickies))
      return array_merge($stickies, $posts);
      return $posts;
     }

    Is there an updated version of the first code, that would work for several blog grids (there are some on different pages, usually with 3 posts and no pagination, and a big one with pagination).

    Thanks !

    Hey JaimBateman,

    Thank you for the inquiry.

    The same code above should work for sticky posts but for the grid layout, you have to replace avia_blog_post_query with the avia_post_slide_query filter. Let us know if that helps.

    Best regards,

    Hey Ismael,

    Thanks for that. I’ve tried the code, and something weird happens : I cannot save the function.php file, and when I do, it causes a critical error on the site. When I try to save and it doesn’t, here’s what it’s telling me :

    Your php code modifications have been cancelled due to an error on line 1048 of the file wp-content/themes/ActifsDV/functions.php. Please correct it and try to save again.
    Cannot redeclare sti() (previously declared in wp-content/themes/ActifsDV/functions.php:1048)

    It seems kind of weird, because the mistake seems to happen on the same line that the function sti is first declared ?

    Thanks for your help !

    your error message is a classic error message if a function already exists.
    So on top the name of the functions are: avia_blog_post_query_mod and bump_sticky_posts_to_top

    if you use them again ( see line 1048) – it is previously declared !
    rename your new entries
    f.e.:

    add_filter('avia_post_slide_query', 'avia_post_slide_query_mod', 10, 2);
    function avia_post_slide_query_mod($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['posts_per_page'] = 6;
    	$query['orderby'] = 'post__in'; // sort items based on the post__in value
    	return $query;
    }

    by the way – there is for masonries a similar solution with filter: avia_masonry_entries_query

    and maybe this post is helpful too – https://kriesi.at/support/topic/sticky-posts-in-post-slider/#post-1202275 and the next post is to have on post slides that too.
    you can give to single posts that are set as sticky posts a class – to easier style them:

    add_filter( 'post_class', 'add_sticky_classes', 10, 3 ); 
    function add_sticky_classes( $classes, $class, $post_id ) {
        if ( ! is_sticky() ) {
            return $classes;
        }
        global $wp_query;
        $classes[] = 'stickypost-' . $post_id;
        return $classes;
    }
    #1320888

    Hi Guenni,
    Thanks for your help, but I’m afraid I wasn’t clear. When I switched the filter, I didn’t paste a new function, but changed the old one – and I do not have the two functions active at the same time (I comment out the bump_sticky_posts_to_top when I test the other one).
    So the problem wasn’t with me having two avia_blog_post_query_mod functions.

    No, the interesting thing is when I paste the code (for the avia_blog_post_query_mod function), it tells me that the sti function (included in the code) causes the problem. When I change the name of the main function (avia_blog_post_query_mod) this doesn’t change. And when , in the code, I change the name of the sti function (to for example stipendous), the error message changes too and tells me stipendous is already declared on line 1048 so I cannot redeclare it on line 1048.

    What is annoying is that I tried copying the code on another website, and the error doesn’t happen, which makes sense – but why is it not working on this website ?

    Thanks for the help !

    #1321377

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help again. I was able to get rid of the error message – I just got the sti function “out” (see below) -, but the sticky post are not in first position in the grid (see links and explanations in private), which was the point of it all… Any idea ?

    Thanks again !

    // sticky posts
    
    function stipendus($n)
    	{
    		settype($n, 'int');
    		return $n ;
    	}
    
    add_filter('avia_post_slide_query', 'avia_post_slide_query_mod_jm', 10, 2);
    function avia_post_slide_query_mod_jm($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
    	$include = array_map("stipendus", $include);
    
    	$query['post__in'] = $include;
    	return $query;
    }
    #1321573

    Hi,

    Thank you for the info.

    Is the sticky post positioned at the very last of the array? Please try to use the array_reverse function to adjust the order of the $include array.

    // https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.array-reverse.php

    Or replace the array_merge with the array-unshift function to move the sticky post at the beginning of the array.

    // https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.array-unshift.php

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    I’ll try. Thanks for your help, and thanks also to Guenni007 (I’ve seen a lot of your posts on these forums, and I appreciate all that you do for us Enfold users !)

    Cheers !
