Ok, Ive developed a theme where basically the posts display the title, the date and category (which is highlighted), the post contents and a read more link... However i have now decided to add an introductory "sticky" post, just an "about me" post which will stay at the top... I know how to make the posts sticky ok, what im wondering though is how i customize this posts appearance compared to all the standard non-sticky posts?
I looked at the html and the sticky post doesn't seem to have a class or anything that defines it as a sticky post, so can't just add the class name to the css and give it different rules.. I would like this post to only display the title, no date or category or read more link (as the entire post will be displayed), and possibly add a different background colour to this one..
I know that definitely doesnt seem right... jsut want to get some knowledge before i go messing with my theme again... the bold section is the bit with the is_sticky query.. what i want is for any "sticky" posts to only display content and with an id which i can target in my css, where the rest of the posts display as shown/formatted (with title, date, category and the read more link)
