    You’re very helpful! Thanks for all your tips 🙂 I just realized that my stickies on my main menu page is exactly what I like BUT the posts that are stickies do not show up in their categories 😦 is there any way around this?

    Thanks for the photos. With the pictures I had a clue on how to find the “Appearance” tab but your post doesn’t say to look under WP Admin. As a new user, that took awhile. Your post is helpful but maybe for the beginner like me, you might edit to include that in the early part of your post.
