I need to maintain pagination for use with infinite scroll.
Is there no way to tell query_posts to retrieve sticky posts first?
It seems to be default behaviour on a standard wordpress blog on the home page, but becomes a bit awkward on a custom template for a page from what I can tell.
Edited to show current query:
query_posts( array( 'post_type' => array('post', 'careers-post'), 'paged' => $paged, 'posts_per_page' => 6, 'category__in' => $page_categories, 'ignore_sticky_posts' => 0 ) );
Edit 2: Seems like "category__in" has a conflict with sticky posts dating back a long time: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/category_in-ampamp-sticky
Just to confirm, removing "category__in" does indeed let sticky posts bubble to the top as expected, but obviously doesn't solve the problem.
