Why do my sticky posts show on my blog?
First, try adding the featured posts to their own category and exclude that category from the blog. That is how the theme is designed to work and this should keep them from appearing on the blog page.
On some installs the sticky posts are showing on the blog page regardless of being in a separate category and excluded. We’re not sure why this only happens on some installs.
To prevent these posts from showing on your blog pages entirely, you can make the following changes.
Open the file “
blog.php” and at or near line 61 replace the “query_posts” call with:
query_posts(array('category__not_in' => $excludeCategories, 'paged'=>$paged, 'ignore_sticky_posts' => 1));
