What is wrong with the existing is_sticky() function that we already have?

  • Status changed from closed to reopened
 * Output 'Sticky', if the post is sticky.
 * Used from within 'The Loop' to allow string output of what ever you want,
 * if the current post is a sticky post.
 * @since 2.7.0
 * @param str $sticky What are we outputing? default: Sticky
 * @param str $before Pre-prend our text
 * @param str $after What are we going to place afterwords
 * @param bool $echo Default to true. False for return.
function the_sticky($sticky = '', $before = '', $after = '', $echo = true) {
	global $id;
	if (!is_sticky(absint($id)))
	if ( strlen($sticky) == 0 )
		$sticky = __('Sticky');

	$sticky = $before . $sticky . $after;

	if ( $echo )
		echo apply_filters( 'the_sticky', $sticky );
		return apply_filters( 'the_sticky', $sticky );

This is what I was trying to do. For inside wp-includes/post.php

comment:6 @ShaneF7 years ago

function the_sticky($sticky = '', $before = '', $after = '', $echo = true) {
	global $id;
	if (!is_sticky(absint($id)))
	if ( strlen($sticky) == 0 ) {
		if (!is_sticky(absint($id)))
			return false;
			return true;

	$sticky = $before . $sticky . $after;

	if ( $echo )
		echo apply_filters( 'the_sticky', $sticky );
		return apply_filters( 'the_sticky', $sticky );

This is a better version... :)

Please expand on what you're trying to do a little, too. I personally fail to see how this the_sticky() function is useful.

Also, that the patch is for an is_sticky() function, which makes the ticket a bit confusing.

no apparent interest, and can be done with a plugin
