In my theme, I'm using front-page.php for the static front page. I'm also using a page to store the content on the static front page. The front-page.php file is set up to show the content from that page.

However, in the front-page.php file, I also want to show all of my blog's sticky posts below that content. How would I do that?


Something like this should work:

$sticky = get_option( 'sticky_posts' );
if ( !empty( $sticky ) ) {  // don't show anything if there are no sticky posts
    $args = array(
        'posts_per_page' => -1,  // show all sticky posts
        'post__in'  => $sticky,
        'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1
    $query = new WP_Query( $args );
    if ( $query->have_posts() ) {
        // display your sticky post here (however you like to do it)

You should place this in your front-page.php file. It will select all sticky posts and show them.

    Make sure to also add a wp_reset_postdata(); after your if statement to reset the $post global to the main query.
