I searched and searched and could not find the definition of a “featured topic”. In particular, I am wondering how the featured topics are selected for the category view when you have “Categories with featured topics” selected for the desktop category page view.
The last (n) topics with latest replies. I agree the text describing this is not great, maybe we should change it to “with recent topics”.
I think it used “featured” because it will show pinned topics that haven’t been unpinned (manually or automatically through reading).
Thanks for the explanation. Is there any way to select what topics (some or all) are displayed in the category list? Sometimes there are topics that I need to be highlighted and it would a nice way making sure they are noticed.
