How to make a post remain at the top of the page.

Posts are sequenced chronologically, with newer posts appearing at the top. If you want a particular post to be always at the top (sticky post), you will have to play with the dates. When you create that sticky post, at the bottom, click POST AND COMMENT OPTIONS, then predate your post to the latest possible, as shown in the screenshot above.

UPDATE 21 January 2007: For the New Blogger (formerly beta), see posts New Blogger (formerly beta): How to add AdSense or sticky post, etc. at the top of every page of your blog.

  1. Yeah, it's to see these things end up here. Longer shelf life than the Blogger help group! I recommended your site once on The Rat Squeaks already and may do again if you keep it going. Good work!

  2. I agree! Please keep it going!

  3. I was so frustrated with Blogger that I almost shifted out from Blogger. Then I found this site.This site is very helpful. I am staying back.


  4. i am new to blogging and i wld like to know what it is that i am doin wrong.
    i had left my blog at blog group desipundit who reviewed my blog n wrote abt it but their link did not link back to my blogsite. altho the back link created at the bottom of my page i can see the link created.
    another thing blogexplosion refuses to put me on their directory saying my default links are not workin and template errors.

  5. You did not give a link back to your site, so how would we know. Anyway, why don't you load a new template (TEMPLATE > NEW) and reapply to BlogExplosion.

  6. Good job... really helpful

  10. Hi RockerDish,

    See the date of this post - March 22, 2006. However, it still can be used, but has an expiry date after which it have to be put up again. Also it will only appear on the homepage and not other pages.

    If you want a permanent "stick post" that has no expiry date and appear in all pages, see permanent "sticky" post.

  11. Thank you! I googled how to sticky a post and your directions came up!

  12. Hi Christi,

    Well, the instructions here for a "sticky post" has an expiry date. Hope you noticed the link to permanent "stick post" which have no "expiry date".

  13. Clever! One runs around in the dark searching for simple answers to road blocks. Thanks for sharing.

    Will try.

  14. rollizalove,

    I am afraid I have to tell you this is an old post and since Blogger introduced, this trick no longer works. Perhaps you may want to try "sticky post" with New Blogger.

  15. I realize this is an old post and there may be other options since 2006. But I figure someone else will wind up here just like I did.

    I was playing with these ideas and stumbled on just adding a text element to the page and dragging to a position right above the blog posts element.

    Put whatever you want in there and it stays right below your page header. It's exactly what I wanted.


  16. Thank toy very much. I Want this kind of Information. I want to stick a post about world cup Theme Song download and i have done this. Thank you Again.
