There is different system between “Running Text” and “Sticky Posts” at single post.
“Running Text” appear in every page when the option is on. The Running Text can’t show the sticky post, available filter are tag, category and sorting.
“Sticky Posts” appear only at single post. This only show sticky post. If you set the filter to featured (Curated > Content > Top Sticky), it only show sticky posts and featured. If you set to “A” category, it only show sticky posts with “A” category.
Can you please show me the page or post url you mean ?
