A thread can be pinned so that it will always appear on the top / first in your category. You can use this feature to highlight threads that are useful.
The steps to pin a thread are as follows:
- Click the module card from the landing page, you will be brought to your module page.
- Click Forum.
- Click the Category where the thread is located.
- Click the pin button that you can find on the right side of the thread’s row.
Once it is done, you will see that your thread is moved to the PINNED DISCUSSION THREADS section. This section will always appear first in your category.
To unpin the thread, just click the pin button again. It will be moved to the OTHER DISCUSSION THREADS section.
When you view a discussion thread, you will also see a Pin option in each of the reply post. This pin works differently. Clicking the pin in the reply will pin the reply to appear immediately after the main post.
