Although it's not possible to inline-edit a Private post to be sticky or to Publish a private post as sticky from the Publish meta box, as shown on the above screen capture, it's possible to do it using the Bulk edit action of the wp-admin/edit.php screen.

Hello @imath do you have anything further to raise on this ticket and do you still have the same issue you reported please? The ticket was highlighted at a component scrub earlier in the year too. Thanks for your input on this.

I tested this issue and it is still relevant.

  1. With Bulk actions -> Edit it is possible to make posts Private and Sticky at the same time, but with Quick edit both checkmarks can be checked, but the post will only be saved as Private and not Sticky. There is no indication that these settings will not work together and have validation somewhere.
  1. The patch works only partly because if in selection to edit are already private posts, they can still be made Sticky.
  1. Difference between Quick Edit and Bulk actions -> Edit is creating confusion. Status Private is checkmark close to Password field in Quick Edit and in the Status select in Bulk action.

It needs to be checked if it should be possible to make posts Sticky and Private at the same time, or if it should not accrue. And then if both editing tools, Quick Edit and Bulk Edit would need to be the same behavior.

@oglekler this ticket is displaying in the list for potential closure. From re-reading your comments in your last update, is this that you wish to keep open? No update has been received from the reporter of this issue as yet.

Olga as the patch works in part, are there any specific next steps or tasks for developers you would suggest if the ticket is to stay open? Thanks.
