While preparing translations to 3.4 I came across


This indicates that a private post cannot be marked as sticky.

  • however it is quite possible to mark a private post as sticky while using quickedit.

Solution proposal, remove sticky tickbox on quickedit if post is private.
Or if this is only related to the XMLRPC, fix the returnmessage to a warning "a private post will only be visible to you, so sticky might not make any sense".

I'm thinking.. "either its possible or its not, the logic should be the same"

  • Keywords dev-feedback added
  • Severity changed from trivial to normal

yes, the logic should be the same. Added dev-feedback to define that the right way is for handling sticky posts.

Wonder if private isn't allowed we should add the check into stick_post().
