Category-specific banner?

We would have a need (if possible) for creating banner topics that are shows only within a certain category.

If we have 2 major categories (only for example, we certainly use more):

  • Students
  • Faculty

Having a different ‘how-to’ posted for each that is dismiss-able would be very helpful.

I realize that many would answer with ‘just use a pinned post’ but we have lots of subcategories and need something to float above the fixed category (and subcategory) list.


We have no plans for this at the moment, as it would make an already complex system even more complex. I would need to hear quite a bit of justification as to why pinned topics in that category cannot work.
