In order to make use of the new sticky post feature found in WordPress 2.7, you’ll need to modify your index.php, page.php, and single.php to make use of the new post_class() function.
Previous themes would use the following within the loop to identify posts:
<div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>" class="post">
Adding support for sticky posts requires dynamic classes using this function:
<?php post_class(); ?>
If there is a specific class that you would like the function to include, you can add it as a parameter: post_class(‘customClass’).
Sorry for not including this feature out of the box by default. These releases are meant to be backwards compatible for WP 2.6 users as well.
