I am using WP 3.0.3 and I would like to exclude sticky posts from my query:
This doesn’t seem to work:
<?php query_posts( 'posts_per_page=9&cat=-1,-2&ignore_sticky_posts=1' );?>
To get JUST the sticky post I use the following:
$sticky = get_option('sticky_posts'); $args = array( 'posts_per_page' => 1, 'post__in' => $sticky ); query_posts($args);
ignore_sticky_posts was introduced in WordPress 3.1. Before this version, you can use
caller_get_posts, which will have the same effect (this option was used when you queried the posts via
get_posts(), which uses the same
WP_Query class in the background, but should ignore sticky posts). The name was a bit confusing, and thus changed in 3.1.
Have you tried using
query_posts( array( 'post__not_in' => get_option( 'sticky_posts' ) ) );
'post__in' will be changed to
'post__not_in' in your code. Thanks!
