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

    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.

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.


Answer update for Craft 3, and also adding in a secondary orderBy so that remaining entries are still ordered by date:

{% set entries = craft.entries.section('news').orderBy('myLightswitch desc, postDate desc').all() %}

Without the secondary orderBy, I have no idea what it's using for the remainder sort order but it's not postDate in my testing at least!
