How would I make a post(s) sticky so that it appears first in the results and does not repeat later in the results?

I'm surprised that this is not built in to Craft. –  pixelJitsu Aug 25 '14 at 18:39
Obviously this could be done with two loops where one == sticky.field and the other is != sticky.field, but I was hoping for a more system level way to do this w/o having to use two loops everywhere it's needed. –  pixelJitsu Aug 25 '14 at 19:00
Is there a way to sort by a field and then by postDate in the same loop? –  pixelJitsu Aug 25 '14 at 19:40
FYI, your three comments are really all extensions of your original question. I'd recommend editing your question to include the entire train of thought... otherwise, you're really only having a conversation with yourself. –  Lindsey D Aug 26 '14 at 8:07

You could add a custom lightswitch field or similar and order your entries by that field.

{% set entries = craft.entries.section('news').order('myLightswitch desc') %}

If you need additional sort options, @Brad just shared how to do that with SQL in the order() parameter.
