I attempted a number of things but for whatever reason i am unable to show sticky excerpts after i select a static home page.

The excerpt that's proven may be the excerpt from the static home page.

Does any body understand how to do that?

Thanks ahead of time,

Peter

This really is really difficult to tell from nothing.

I'd consider this:

Within the reading through option panel, have you assign the static page within the posts dropdown, otherwise achieve this also it should fix your problem !

If you work with a custom template file, are you currently utilizing a custom wordpress query ? If you're beginning a loop without needing a custom query, the default behavior would be to return content in the page whose web site is designated to.

Please increase the particulars if you cannot take action.

edit: this link describes it nicely

Try the answer I emerged with - makes stickies sticky literally everywhere in Wordpress, even admin.
