I'd like to implement something similar to "sticky" articles in a forum, where one or two of these appear at the top, followed by blog content, and I want these "sticky" articles to be editable by a moderator in the front-end.
One way of simulating a single "sticky" article is to place the content in the category description, but, this only works for one article, and it not editable in the front-end.
I'm willing to think laterally. Perhaps I'm thinking about it all wrong. This could possibly be done as a separate blog category that is displayed below the main articles (in a module?), and where the blog items themselves are managed under a separate menu item.
