sticky topics - where do they appear?

I logged on as administrator, made a post and then turned it into a sticky. That part went well, but the problem is that the post is still visible in the latest discussions list too... Where did I go wrong?

Hmmm... In the FAQ it says: Sticky topics appear ONLY in topics list.

Oakie - I also use 1.6.

Hmmm... maybe it's just me? One question - when you turn a topic into a sticky, does it still show in the last discussions list as a regular topic, or is it totally removed from the last discussions list?

I have one topic stickied in my Music topics forum. That sticky topic does not appear in the last discussions area on the front page.

To see that sticky topic, I have to enter the music forum . When I do that, then the sticky is stuck and visible in the listings for the music forum.

So, to answer your question:

Let's say I have 3 main forums "General" , "Music" , and "Movies".

I stick a topic that I see on the main page in "last discussions" and that topic belongs to the "Music" forum.

That topic does not display a "sticky" graphic next to it on the main page in "last discussions".

I can see the topic in "last discussions" on the main page, but I cannot tell that it is sticky, and over time as more topics are made, this sticky topic vanishes off the main page in "last discussions"

When I click the "Music" link on the main page and enter the "Music" forum, It takes me to a listing of current topics related only to the music forum.

Right there at the top of listings is the sticky topic shown with a sticky graphic . It does not move off of this list unless I "unstick" it.

Understand ?

Great explanation!

ALL: FAQ say it right: Sticky topic WILL NOT APPEAR AS STICKY IN LAST DISCUSSIONS. You will see it here until its date is fresh (this is logical, isn't it?)

Thanks Oakie!


Well, actually it doesn't say that. It says: Sticky topics appear ONLY in topics list. Last discussions page stays untouched!

That is what got me confused - I thought they would not show in the last discussions list at all. But now I know what you meant.
