Are pinned posts a new thing?

Heya

Just wanted to check, I saw it this morning - if they have been there for ages, I am going to give myself a slap.

Yep! Happy you like!

Shout-out to @rhymes for this one, I believe?

hey there - just a quick one on pinned posts, should they pin to the homefeed pre authentication?

Hi @lee ! I'm not sure I understood your question, what do you mean?

Hey @rhymes - when you pin a post, should it pin at the top of the homefeed for everyone regardless of whether they are logged in or not?

Thanks to Rhymes, I think I can answer this one! The RFC here doesn't show any distinction in behaviour between logged in or not logged in users. Are you experiencing a difference?

Heya @ellativity - yes - I have 3 articles pinned across each of my Forems but they only show at the top when I am logged in.

And this is the case for every Forem? I think I'm only signed up to FlowState so could only test it on there (and I can confirm that I experienced the same thing).

Hi! Yes it is the same on all of them.

Hey @ellativity πŸ‘‹πŸΌ did you mean that the post was pinned when logged in and when logged out?

It was not visible when I viewed your Forems logged out, but this is a confirmed bug πŸͺ² so a PR is in process to ensure it is in future. πŸŽ‰

It should be ready now! We merged and deployed github.com/forem/forem/pull/14219 both on DEV and on the Forem Fleet. You will have to update to the latest main for self hosted Forems!

Interestingly, pinned posts do not appear in the latest tab. I wonder if that's intentional?

Amazing, I didn't realise they were a thing either.
