Re: specific article to be always first on an article list

If you make that article a sticky article, you can do:

<txp:article … status="sticky" />
<txp:article … status="live" />

where ... is all your other attributes. You may also be able to do:

<txp:article … status sort="Status desc, Posted desc" />

using just status on its own, which Oleg mentioned covers both cases.

And then you can also always do:

<txp:article_custom id="123" … />
<txp:article exclude="123" … />

where 123 is the id of the article you want to appear first.

Re: specific article to be always first on an article list

Hi Gallex, I also had some similar issues which I eventually solved by having all articles live but use a custom field.

Check this structure, especially on lines 193-196. c10 is a name of a custom field that, if I have an article which I mark with an x, it keeps them on the top of the first page.

You may want to check out what I have in the live and sticky forms but. do remember that by sticky here I am not referring to the status.

Re: specific article to be always first on an article list

There should be no problem with viewing sticky articles, just save one on the demo site and access it by its URL. But there is no evidence your other articles use the form you cite above. Their HTML output is

<section class="content-1">
<div class="container">
<div class="container">

<div class="title">
<h1>Norra 2019</h1>
</div>
<div class="body">
<ul class="article-album article-album-3">
	<li><a href="https://maalitudmaailm.ee/images/2.jpg" data-fancybox="group" data-caption="It is a long established fact that ">
<img src="https://maalitudmaailm.ee/images/2t.jpg" alt="It is a long established fact that " width="306" height="250">
</a>
<span class="thumb-alt">It is a long established fact that </span>
</li>
...
</ul>
</div>

</div>
</div>
</section>

how to save article on the demo site?

i thought the individual article part of my code is not important in my issue, that’s why i leaved it out. the whole code:

<txp:if_individual_article>
<txp:article>
<div class="title">
<h1><txp:title /></h1>
</div>
<div class="body">
<txp:body />
</div>
</txp:article>

<txp:else />

<h6 class="header-top-left">Maalid</h6>
<txp:article frontpage="0" limit="12" status sort="Status desc, Posted desc" wraptag="div" break="div" class="tulbad-3 col-content-2 cat">
<div class="cat-img">
<txp:permlink><txp:article_image /></txp:permlink>
</div>
<div class="cat-text">
<h5><txp:permlink><txp:title /></txp:permlink></h5>
</div>
</txp:article>

</txp:if_individual_article>

It is, try adding status to <txp:article> also in the individual part.

Re: specific article to be always first on an article list

Great! We have considered modifying <txp:article /> to process both live and sticky articles on individual pages, but some prehistoric templates use

<txp:article />
<txp:article status="sticky" />

combo, which means sticky articles would be output twice.
